LTC News Release: Letter to DC Council on Home Health Aide Parking Permits

In a letter sent February 8, 2023, the DC Coalition on Long Term Care is calling on the DC Department of Transportation to reengineer ParkDC, a system to issue free parking permits to home health aides via an on-line portal. The system is supposed to help HHAs avoid parking tickets when they are working in residential neighborhoods with parking restrictions. But the system is hopelessly complex and burdensome. Even with assistance, aides and seniors are unable to navigate the twelve step process. Our letter to Councilmembers Charles Allen, Anita Bonds, and Christina Henderson identifies the problems and offers workable solutions. Read the full letter and other workforce information here.
