IMPROVE Act Easy Script
Hello, this is [Name]. I’m a resident of [Town, State].
I am calling to express my concern about the expiration of the Money Follow the Person (MFP) program and urge you to vote yes on the IMPROVE Act (H.R. 7217) that passed in the House.
MFP has enabled over 88,000 older adults and people with disabilities living in institutions to transition back to their communities. MFP is fiscally responsible: it has improved the quality of live for thousands of individuals while saving states money. The program has expired and states are scaling back their programs, and without funding, could have to completely eliminate them.
I am asking [Senator’s Name] to vote yes on the IMPROVE Act that passed in the House and reauthorize the Money Follows the Person Program.
Thank you for taking my call!
