State Plan on Aging

As mandated under the Older Americans Act, every four years, Aging and Disability Services submits a State Plan on Aging to the Administration on Community Living (ACL). This plan covers the period of October 1, 2014 to September 30, 2018 and was submitted to the ACL July 1, 2014.

The purpose of the State Plan on Aging is to document achievements and planned activities related to the state's long term supports and services planning efforts, provide a state framework for activities related to programs/activities/services to Older Adults, and provide assurances to ACL that the provisions of the Older Americans Act will be followed.

Thank you for the comments you provided during the development of the State Plan on Aging and for your participation in the corresponding survey. The final plan was approved by ACL on August 5, 2014. Survey results may be found here:  What Do Older Adults and People with Disabilities Need?
