Write Congress to Support Increased Funding for Geriatrics Education and Training Programs in FY 2023
The annual Congressional budget process is underway for FY 2023. The Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program (GWEP) and Geriatrics Academic Career Award (GACA) Program receive their budget from Congress as part of this process.

GWEPs educate and engage the broader frontline workforce, including the caregiving workforce and family caregivers, and focus on opportunities to improve the quality of care delivered to older adults, particularly in underserved and rural areas. GACAs ensure we can equip early-career clinician educators to become leaders in geriatrics education and research. Both are the only federal programs designed to increase the number of faculty with geriatrics expertise in a variety of disciplines with the skills and training to care for older adults and their caregivers.

Please write to your Senators and Representative to support these programs. After you enter your contact information, our suggested message will come up.
