In politics, money talks, and the Home Care Political Action Committee (PAC) gives us a voice. When home care professionals speak through the Home Care PAC, Tallahassee listens. And the more money the PAC raises, the louder we speak!
The Home Care PAC isn't Republican, it's isn't Democrat, it doesn't represent the independent voter, and it doesn't buy votes. It is simply the collective voice – and sometimes the only voice – fighting for Florida's home care industry in Tallahassee. Without the PAC, your voice in Tallahassee falls silent.
Contributions are voluntary and do not come from HCAF membership dues. Your contribution gives a voice to the patients who need you!
Support the 2020 PAC Campaign!
Join Florida home care agencies, industry professionals, and stakeholders in supporting the 2020 Home Care PAC campaign!
Each year, HCAF's public policy team proposes government policies that protect our industry, its workforce, and the patients and clients who depend on access to cost-effective, high-quality services in the patient-preferred setting – at home.
In 2020, 140 legislative seats will be on the ballot, and if each of the more than 1,900 licensed agencies operating across the Sunshine State invested $100 in the PAC’s 2020 campaign, we would have nearly $200,000 to advance our priorities and fight off harmful measures more effectively.
We need elected leaders who will make the tough decisions necessary to move Florida forward, and your Home Care PAC support is critical to this effort.
Please consider contributing $100 or more to the PAC by clicking here.
(Florida law allows businesses and individuals to contribute to political committees and there is no contribution limit.)
The objectives of the PAC are:
- To promote and strive for the improvement of government by encouraging and stimulating home health agencies and others to take a more active and effective part in governmental affairs;
- To encourage home health agencies and others to understand the nature and actions of the government, as to important political issues, and as to the records of office holders and candidates for elective office at all levels of government;
- To assist home health agencies and others in organizing themselves for more effective political action and in carrying out their civil responsibilities; and,
- To support candidates for election to public office at the local and state levels who share the views of home care providers on issues important to the home care industry.
