Advocacy Day 2016 (3).jpg

Budget Advocacy

LiveOn NY is committed to advocating for fair and adequate funding for aging service providers throughout every community in New York City and New York State. Whether it is for senior centers, case management, home delivered meals, home care, elder abuse, caregiving, social adult day, transportation, or other life sustaining services, we know that government funding makes a critical difference in countless lives. We encourage you to join us in advocating for funding that will meet the needs of New York's diverse and aging population in culturally competent ways.

Over 1800 seniors are languishing on waitlists for case management. This is wrong. This is harmful.
— Bobbie Sackman, Associate Executive Director of Public Policy

New York City

Working with a coalition of New York City's leading aging services providers, we are pleased to present our FY2018 Budget Agenda. LiveOn NY and its coalition of providers are determined for FY2018 to be "The Year of the Senior".

LiveOn NY believes in sustainable solutions that build upon the infrastructure of aging services that already exists. This is why we have also included a 5 year capacity building and modernization plan that would allow providers to truly serve Older New Yorkers.

Annual City Advocacy Day

Each year we take to City Hall to ensure that the senior perspective is heard! Through a rally on the steps of City Hall and meetings with Council Members, LiveOn NY coordinates a day of senior activism focused on ensuring that aging related services and the needs of Older New Yorkers are both understood and supported.

May 3rd will be our 22nd Annual Advocacy Day!
