The Administration for Community Living (ACL) is substantially updating the Older Americans Act for the first time since 1988 with a new proposed rule. These changes would include equity in service delivery, accountability for funds expended, and clarity of administration for ACL and its grantees.
Whether they know it or not, elders across the U.S. rely on critical programs and services funded by the OAA to help them live safely in their homes and communities as they age.
By the year 2030, more than one in five people in the U.S. will be age 65 or older. Increasing our investment in cost-effective OAA programs and services is a critical step in responding to the needs of our aging America.
