Last week, a group of U.S. lawmakers introduced new legislation designed to pump hundreds of billions of dollars into home-based care in the next few years.

One specific part of the bill, for example, sets aside $100 million for states to develop plans to expand access to Medicaid HCBS and strengthen the home-based care workforce, which is largely made up of low-wage workers, the majority of whom are women and people of color. That funding would be distributed no later than 12 months after the enactment of the Better Care Better Jobs Act.”
