Social Media Toolkit

Update: May 7, 2018

We know it can be hard to keep up with everything that's happening so we created a page to give you a few quick facts and updates about the most pressing issues. 

To learn more about what we're watching -- including Medicaid work requirements, a bill to reauthorize Money Follows the Person, and a forthcoming rule that will harm people with disabilities trying to become U.S. citizens, visit the new Current Issues page.

  1. Be a voice for seniors and people with disabilities in your community! On Wed., March 7, call your member of Congress and tell them support the EMPOWER Act. This bill funds the Money Follows the Person program so older adults and people with disabilities can move from institutions and nursing homes back to their homes and communities. RSVP to this Facebook event to get a reminder for the call-in! https://www.facebook.com/events/2003030843356890/ #FundMFP

  2. Today is the day! Call your members of Congress and tell them older adults and people with disabilities want to live at home in your community. Ask them to support the EMPOWER Act to fund the Money Follows the Person program. Call (202) 224-3121 or (202) 224-3091 (TTY) today and tell Congress to keep funding this good work! #FundMFP [graphic of choice]

  3. Make noise on social media TODAY to tell your member of Congress to support the EMPOWER Act to fund the Money Follows the Person program. If you’ve been wondering about the program, watch this video from Lisa in Georgia, who was in a car accident and then a long-term care facility. MFP helped her move back home. If you think its important that people like Lisa be able to get the care they need at home, share this link and don’t forget to tag your members of Congress. #FundMFP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VA_1IUhVbQY

  4. The Money Follows the Person program (MFP) makes a world of difference for older adults and people with disabilities, but the funding is running out and states need Congress to provide more or the program will shut down. Watch what having more independence means for people who benefit from MFP, and share this story with your members of Congress by tagging them on social media! #FundMFP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLJ4A7XALLQ

  5. We are all healthier and happier at home. And that’s what most older adults and people with disabilities want to be in their own home. The Money Follows the Person program gives them that option, but funding is running out. Tag your members of Congress on social media, and show them these success stories as a reason to support the EMPOWER Act, which would fund MFPs work. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0hvha8MXcA
