That's why one of the first initiatives I announced as Governor was to improve home-based and community-based care services, so that more seniors could have more options for getting the care they needed without having to move out of their homes. And it's why, when health insurers threatened to kick 180,000 seniors off their health plans, we stepped in and took those insurance companies to court to make sure that their coverage stayed in place.
Just this past year, we distributed more than $2 million in lottery proceeds to 43 senior community centers. And we made it easier for struggling seniors to get assistance purchasing nutritious food.
