GAO Report on OAA Funding Formulas

At the request of Senator Bob Corker (R-TN), Ranking Minority Member of the Senate Special Committee on Aging, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) did a study on the intrastate funding formulas used for Older Americans Act (OAA) programs and services. The report suggests several alternative formulas to "better meet generally accepted equity standards in targeting greatest economic and social need." It would be up to the 113th Congress to determine if the report's recommendations have merit as the OAA reauthorization is considered.
