IVMF Supports the Credit for Caring Act

Veterans talking and veterans in wheelchairs.5.5 million Americans provide $14 billion in unpaid service for wounded warriors each year, helping them to remain at home—where they want to be.

These veteran and military family caregivers, along with millions of civilian caregivers, hold up America’s fractured and outdated long-term care system. But, they often face intensified challenges—including worse health outcomes, greater strains on family relationships, more workforce difficulties, and immediate financial need.

We believe Veteran and Military Caregivers have earned support as they take on the costs and responsibilities associated with caregiving. The bipartisan Credit for Caring Act, introduced in the U.S. House and Senate, would provide a federal tax credit of up to $5,000 for eligible working family caregivers—including those caring for wounded warriors—to help defray the cost of caring.
