Help Gain Support for the Autism Family Caregivers Act
On April 27th, on World Autism Day, Representatives Grace Meng (D-N.Y.), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.), Henry Cuellar (D-Texas), and Marc Molinaro (R-N.Y.) reintroduced the bipartisan Autism Family Caregivers Act. An identical bill was introduced in the Senate by Senators Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Susan Collins (D-ME). The legislation authorizes the establishment of a five-year pilot program to award grants to nonprofit organizations, community health centers, hospital systems, or a consortium, to provide evidence-based caregiver skills training to family caregivers of children with autism and other developmental disabilities or delays. Help us get more co-sponsors by using this action alert to send a letter with a personal story about how this bill will positively impact your family.
