Ohio Legislators Fund Adult Protective Services
In a May 2015 letter to the Ohio Senate Finance Committee the C3A Consortium requested an allocation of $20,000,000 for Adult Protective Services in the Ohio Biennial Budget (H.B.64). However, the newly signed state budget allocates only $2,640,000 for APS.
While $2,640,000 is less than the Consortium had hoped for, it is still more than Ohio has traditionally allocated for Adult Protective Services. We are happy that our state legislators Increasingly recognize the need for adequate funding to protect our vulnerable seniors.
The C3A Consortium will continue to advocate for the safety and well being of all Ohio seniors.
