Older Americans Act

A new report from the AARP Public Policy Institute provides information about the Older Americans Act (OAA), which furnishes critical services that help approximately 11 million older adults live as independently as possible. In fiscal year 2019, OAA federal funding was $2.06 billion. Funding for the program has failed to keep up with inflation and increased demand from a rapidly aging population.
