LUM Campaign for Hoosier Families is monitoring the progress of the Comprehensive Addiction & Recovery Act.
CARA of 2016 is the most expansive federal, bipartisan legislation to date for addiction support services, designating between $40 million and $80 million toward advancing treatment and recovery support services in state and local communities across the country, which will help save the lives of countless people.
On March 10, 2016, the US Senate passed CARA with a vote of 94-1. Next, both the House and Senate need to support appropriations for CARA. Here is how YOU can take action:
- Call and Email your Representative and urge them to support appropriations for CARA. A list of Your Legislators may be found HERE.
- If your Senator or Representative has supported CARA, thank them.
- Educate yourself about CARA and the Legislative Process. Information may be found HERE.
- Share information about CARA with others in your community.
- Track the Bill HERE.
