AAAs & Title VI Aging Programs

         


As the local component of the Aging Network, AAAs and Title VI Native American aging programs successfully develop, coordinate and deliver aging services in every community across the nation, providing assistance to more than eight million older Americans and caregivers annually.

Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) were established under the Older Americans Act (OAA) in 1973 to respond to the needs of Americans 60 and over in every local community. By providing a range of options that allow older adults to choose the home and community-based services and living arrangements that suit them best, AAAs make it possible for older adults to “age in place” in their homes and communities.

Title VI, Grants for Indian Tribal Organizations, was included in the 1978 Amendments to the OAA. Title VI Native American aging programs provide nutrition, supportive and caregiver services to older American Indians, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians.
