The Long-Term Care Equality Index is a joint project of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation and SAGE.

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation improves the lives of LGBTQ+ people by working to increase understanding and encourage the adoption of LGBTQ+ inclusive policies and practices. Learn more at www.thehrcfoundation.org.

SAGE offers supportive services and consumer resources to LGBT older people and their caregivers, advocates for public policy changes that address the needs of LGBT elders, and provides education and technical assistance for aging providers and LGBT community organizations.

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation and SAGE would like to thank our generous sponsors, without whom the Long-Term Care Equality Index would not be possible.
