NCOA: OAA Reauthorization

3 of 9Adult Day Health Care dilemma Trinidad Contreras is a fixture at Gardner Family Health Network Adult Day Health Care facility in San Jose, Calif. on Wednesday, June 6, 2012. Due to budget cuts, the state declared Contreras no longer eligible for benefits, but Gardner Family Health Network Adult Day Health Care is continuing to let him participate in its programs without getting reimbursed while he appeals. He spends the hours between about 10 am and 2 pm playing dominos, walking the courtyard and tending the small garden boxes. (Dan Honda/Staff)

The Older Americans Act (OAA) funds critical services that keep older adults healthy and independent—services like meals, job training, senior centers, caregiver support, transportation, health promotion, benefits enrollment, and more.

The Act is overdue for reauthorization—and we’re urging Congress to seize this opportunity to update and renew its commitment to these programs and those they serve.
