Federal Policy Dashboard

With the tectonic shift in our national political landscape, programs that California seniors depend on may be at grave risk. SSC’s goal is to protect these programs for Alameda County seniors. We are following key advocacy organizations that are well-equipped to track federal policy developments and lead national advocacy efforts.

This Dashboard will help you identify, connect with and follow federal aging advocacy leaders, link to information on recent developments and analysis, and connect with planned actions.
