|Home Care Political Action Committee|
In politics, money talks, and the Home Care Political Action Committee (PAC) gives us a voice. When home care professionals speak through the Home Care PAC, Tallahassee listens. And the more money the PAC raises, the louder we speak!
Home Care PAC isn't Republican; it's isn't Democrat; it doesn't represent the independent voter; it doesn't buy votes. It is simply the collective voice – and sometimes the only voice – fighting for Florida's home care industry in Tallahassee. Without the PAC, your voice in Tallahassee falls silent.
Contributions are voluntary and do not come from HCAF membership dues. Your contribution gives a voice to the patients who need you!
What is a PAC?
Political Action Committees, have been around since 1944 when the Congress of Industrial Organizations formed the first one to raise money for the reelection of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. PACs represent business, labor, or ideological interests, and exist to raise and spend money to elect and defeat candidates.
PAC funding must come from voluntary contributions from members. PACs may give to a candidate committee per election (primary, general, run-off, or special elections). They may also give to any national party committee and annually to any other PAC. PACs may receive contributions from any one individual. In short, PACs merely represent a legal way for individuals to unite and ensure their voices are heard at all levels of government.
The objectives of the PAC are:

Request PAC Support
To be considered for PAC funds, you must be a candidate for a state-level office (Governor/Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Chief Financial Officer, Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services, State Legislature) in Florida. By law, federal-level candidates cannot receive PAC funds. Candidates seeking PAC support must contact Kyle Simon at firstname.lastname@example.org. All requests will be reviewed by the PAC Board for a final decision.
