Yes on Question 1: Mainers for Homecare


What would the initiative do?

  • The measure would enact a payroll tax and non-wage income tax to fund a program called the Universal Home Care Program.
  • The Universal Home Care Program would be designed to provide long-term health care and social services to adults 65 years of age or older or with physical or mental disabilities in their homes at no costs to the individuals or their families.
  • Providers that receive funds from the program would be required to spend at least 77 percent of the funds on worker costs.
