Federal COVID-19 response actions affecting older adults, persons with disabilities

This post highlights key federal actions in response to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)—through April 16, 2020—relating to social services and health programs that serve older adults and persons with disabilities. Specifically, we describe the aging and disability-related components of the two most recent pieces of COVID-19 federal legislation (H.R. 6201 and H.R. 748).

Additionally, we explain other key federal actions, beyond those taken through the two most recent pieces of COVID-19 federal legislation, that affect older adults and persons with disabilities. While this post reflects our best understanding of the high-level content and implications of federal actions, we will update the post as new information and clarifications become available. We will also update the post to reflect any future federal actions.
