Older Americans Act Services

The Older Americans Act of 1965 (OAA) was enacted to improve the lives of America's older individuals in relation to income, health, housing, employment, long-term care, retirement, and community service. The underlying purpose is to enhance the ability of older individuals to maintain as much independence as possible and to remain in their own homes and communities. Federal funds are allocated to states on an annual basis to provide services to older individuals.
