Indiana Policy Update

The 2021 Indiana General Assembly has ended for now and will re-convene later this year to finalize redistricting once census data is available. Despite the challenges presented by new rules and procedures related to COVID-19, we effectively advocated and provided input on legislation affecting older adults, people with disabilities and social determinants of health. Read more about our policy priorities and contributions to helping Hoosiers safely weather the COVID-19 pandemic.

We prioritized issues that significantly affect older adults and people with disabilities of any age:

  • CHOICE budget and its use
  • Social determinants of health
  • Family caregiver supports and concerns
  • Dementia-related initiatives
  • In-home care workforce
  • Elder justice
  • Guardianship and less restrictive alternatives
  • Affordable housing
  • Reliable transportation
  • Broadband connectivity

Contact your legislators to share your views!

IAAAA advocates year-round at the Indiana Statehouse, and we look forward to interim study committees taking place from about August-October 2021.
