This is an opportunity for members of the public to comment on any aspect of the proposed State Budget or programs they feel are important for the state to fund. We are sending this message to people we know are interested in services for older adults, to help make sure that the legislature hears from people who feel that funding these services should be a priority.

Hearings will be taking place in different parts of the state. Additional details can be found in this press release.

You are encouraged to testify about what you feel is important based on your own knowledge and experience. These talking points, developed by our Vermont Association of Area Agencies on Aging, may provide helpful ideas for your testimony.

If you have any questions, please contact Joann Erenhouse, Director of Community Relations, at JErenhouse@SeniorSolutionsVT.org or 802-885-2655.
