State-by-State: Better Care Better Jobs Act

Chairman Senator Casey released state-by-state fact sheets demonstrating the positive impact of enacting S. 2210, the Better Care Better Jobs Act, which seeks to expand access to home and community-based services and increase compensation for home care workers. The fact sheets, based on publicly available data and expert analysis, highlight the difference in costs for providing care in the home and in institutional settings, and provide state-level figures illustrating the profound, potential effects of the bill’s passage. Specifically, these state-by-state fact sheets note: 

  • How many people are on wait lists for care; 
  • How many family caregivers could return to work; 
  • How many more seniors and people with disabilities could access care; and
  • How many new home care jobs would be created. 

S. 2210 has the support of over 500 state and national organizations. Based on the latest polling from Data for Progress, more than 3 in 4 Americans support this legislation. 

Please also see a recent New York Times op-ed about the importance of supporting caregivers, which references the Better Care Better Jobs Act.
