The Older Americans Act will be considered for Congressional re-authorization and amendments in 2011. This is the Act considered the major legislative vehicle for the delivery of social, nutritional and caregiver services to older adults. The Administration on Aging (AoA) is seeking input from individuals and agencies on the Act’s re-authorization.
You can view the current Older Americans Act right here.
Individuals can submit your thoughts directly online through the AoA’s online survey.
Alternatively, you can mail your thoughts in on this AoA prepared form. Write as much as you’d like.
Agencies interested in holding a re-authorization “event” can use this online submission form to submit participants’ opinions.
