Coalition lobbying for more stimulus funding to help elderly

Expand PACE in Ohio- The Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly

Dayton Ohio–Ohio House Bill 600 would use $50 million of ARPA funds be utilized to expand PACE throughout Ohio. Increasing services that would allow more elderly people to stay and age in their home is the goal of a statewide coalition. Right now McGregor remains the only PACE program in Ohio, serving almost 700 participants throughout Cuyahoga County and providing affordable housing opportunities in McGregor’s Assisted Living.

The coalition is asking lawmakers to support legislation to use additional funds from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) to expand the state’s Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE).

Ohio has the third largest PACE eligible population in the U.S., according to LeadingAge Ohio, a nonprofit trade association representing approximately 400 long-term care organizations and hospices.
