NCOA partners with Black, Latinx, and LGBTQ+ organizations to address growing economic insecurity amid pandemic

Grassroots effort will expand access to benefits programs for older adults

ARLINGTON, Virginia, July 14, 2020 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Today, the National Council on Aging (NCOA), a trusted national leader working to ensure that every person can age well, announced partnerships with…

Grassroots effort will expand access to benefits programs for older adults

ARLINGTON, Virginia, July 14, 2020 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Today, the National Council on Aging (NCOA), a trusted national leader working to ensure that every person can age well, announced partnerships with several leading local and national nonprofits to connect diverse older adults, their caregivers, and their families to benefits programs to help them pay for food, prescription drugs, and health services.

(L-R) Vivian Nava Schellinger, NCOA; Lonita Muñoz, Ledbetter Eagle Ford Community Organization; Abigail Zapote, Latinos for a Secure Retirement; Carl Burlbaw, The Senior Source; Edith Rodriguez, Texas LULAC; Alfonso Franco, Proyecto inmigrante; Miriam Sanchez, Mexican Consulate & Amigos Sin Fronteras; Carmen Guzman, LegalShield.

The COVID-19 pandemic is pushing a growing number of older adults, especially those who are Black and Latinx, into poverty. Even before the coronavirus, eligible older adults left $30 billion in federal and state benefits unused because they didn’t know about them or how to apply. These programs include the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Food Stamps), Medicare Savings Programs, Medicare Prescription Drug Low-Income Subsidy, and more.

Community-based organizations—who know and are best positioned to serve their local citizens—are crucial to helping eligible older adults understand and apply for these life-changing benefits.

«Community is everything, now more than ever,» said Vivian Nava-Schellinger, NCOA Director, Community Partnerships & Network Activation. «There are systemic and racial obstacles that keep nearly 3 million eligible older adults and people with disabilities from accessing benefits designed to help them pay for basic needs. These new partnerships will bring the message of benefits access to the communities that need them most.»

NCOA is proud to partner with the following nonprofits:

  • Alliance for African American Health of Central Texas, Austin, TX
  • The Borderland Rainbow Center, El Paso, TX
  • The Juanita C. Grant Foundation, Capital Heights, MD
  • Latinos for a Secure Retirement, Washington, DC
  • League of United Latin American Citizens, Washington, DC
  • San Ysidro Health, San Diego, CA

Together, NCOA and these partners will work to shift programming and resources to virtual formats to support social distancing, decrease social isolation, and think creatively about ways to communicate with older adults who are not digitally connected, but still need critical information to help them stay financially secure. NCOA also will center conversations around aging as an equity issue and ensure that our partnerships are reflective of the people we serve.

«The Juanita C. Grant Foundation is proud to enter into a partnership with NCOA working towards the common goal of improving the lives of older adults,» said S. Orlene Grant, Founder and President & CEO of The Juanita C. Grant Foundation. «In particular, we look forward to collaborating on community engagement and developing strategies with resources on the ground that will enhance economic security, disrupt social isolation of older adults increased by the pandemic, and address long-standing inequities experienced by older adults in communities of color.»

«The suffering our low-income seniors are experiencing during COVID-19 has worsened this crisis,» said Ana Melgoza, Vice President of External Affairs for San Ysidro Health. «When you see headlines stating income and race are major predictors of coronavirus infections, you realize economic relief is needed for our seniors to survive and live through this emergency pandemic. We are honored to work with NCOA in serving the disproportionate amount of grandparents raising grandchildren, seniors with chronic illnesses in overcrowded housing, and seniors with limited access to healthy foods.»

NCOA houses the Center for Benefits Access, funded by the U.S. Administration for Community Living, to support organizations in enrolling older adults and younger adults with disabilities with limited means into the benefits programs for which they are eligible. This week, July 13-17, 2020, NCOA is sponsoring Boost Your Budget™ Week to educate older adults about benefits programs and direct them to www.ncoa.org/Boost to take a free online screening to see if they’re eligible.

About NCOA
The National Council on Aging (NCOA) is a trusted national leader working to ensure that every person can age well. Since 1950, our mission has not changed: Improve the lives of millions of older adults, especially those who are struggling. NCOA empowers people with the best solutions to improve their own health and economic security—and we strengthen government programs that we all depend on as we age. Every year, millions of people use our signature programs BenefitsCheckUp®, My Medicare Matters®, and the Aging Mastery Program® to age well. By offering online tools and collaborating with a nationwide network of partners, NCOA is working to improve the lives of 40 million older adults by 2030. Learn more at ncoa.org and @NCOAging.

This project was supported, in part, by grant #90MINC0001-03-01 from the U.S. Administration on Community Living (ACL), Department of Health and Human Services, Washington DC 20201. Grantees undertaking projects under government sponsorship are encouraged to express freely their findings and conclusions.

The campaign is endorsed by 50+ groups, including Cedar Rapids, Iowa Sunrise Hub and Iowa Alliance for Responsible Agriculture.

Join the virtual press conference July 14, 7 p.m. CDT.

«Consumers must lead the just transition to a decentralized system of organic regenerative pasture-raised/grass-fed meat production, run by a diverse network of local/regional independent farmers, ranchers, processors and retailers who are committed to fair pay and safe working conditions, and environmental and climate justice,» said Ronnie Cummins, OCA’s international director.

Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), who introduced the House version of the Farm Systems Reform Act, said: «Consumer demand and policy reform must go hand-in-hand to level the playing field for independent diversified producers so they can provide a dependable and sustainable food Consumers deserve to know where their meat comes from, and farmers deserve a fair shot in the marketplace.»

«From the growing number of meatpacking plant workers suffering from COVID-19, to families mourning the loss of  loved ones, we are witnessing the human cost associated with the profits of our nation’s largest meat processors,» said Darryl Morin, Forward Latino president. «Predominantly people of color, these essential workers have the right to the same workplace protections most of us take for granted.»

«With price fixing, injustices to farmers and meatpacking plant workers, a lack of food security and infrastructure, and environmental and public health concerns that hurt us all, the industrial livestock system has long been rife with abuse,» said Sherri Dugger, executive director of SRAP. «Our future depends on our taking action.»

Organic Consumers Association (OCA) is a national grassroots nonprofit advocating on behalf of millions of consumers for safe, healthful food and a clean environment.

Forward Latino is a non-profit, non-partisan advocacy and service organization dedicated to assisting Latinos pursuing the American Dream. Forward Latino fulfills its mission through advocacy, civic engagement, education and service delivery.

Socially Responsible Agricultural Project (SRAP) helps rural communities replace industrial livestock production with ecologically sound, socially equitable, and economically viable animal agriculture.

This tax credit enables those who qualify for another tax credit, California Earned Income Tax Credit (CalEITC), and have a child under the age of 6 as of the end of the tax year to receive an additional $1,000 credit. Families can claim this credit by filing or amending a state income tax return.

Many families also may not realize they can file retroactively for up to three years of refundable credits that they did not claim in prior years,» Manzo added. The extension for filing this year applies retroactively, so you can get the help you need to file your returns for 2019, 2018, 2017, and even 2016.
