LiveOn NY is committed to advocating for fair and adequate funding for aging services throughout every community in New York. Whether its for senior centers, case management, home delivered meals, elder abuse, caregiving, 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!
On behalf of our members agencies and older New Yorker's across the five boroughs, we are pleased to present our FY20 Budget agenda, which will focus on working together to make New York a #FairCity4AllAges
We can make New York a better place to age, but we need your help!
Join us in calling on the City to invest in the Department for the Aging (DFTA), which funds services such as home-delivered meals, elder abuse prevention, case management, Senior Center programming, and more. Specific action items are forthcoming on how to participate in our advocacy efforts! Until then, join in the conversation by tweeting your support for the campaign using the hashtag #FairCity4AllAges
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.
