Help Us Learn More About How AAAs Have Responded to COVID-19 and Championed Equity

Over the past few weeks, AAAs have been sharing their experiences and innovations with us as part of n4a's Future Directions poll. If you haven't already, there's still time for you to share your agency's successes, challenges and needs to help n4a tell a more complete story of the many ways AAAs are supporting and improving life for older adults. But hurry, the poll closes today! Wondering about the types of responses we've received? Read on for details!

Here are a few examples of new activities AAAs have told us they are engaged in:
  • Equity: Implementing a heat map showing geographic areas with higher social risk factors to help target their outreach
  • COVID-19: Helping homebound seniors receive vaccines without having to leave their homes, coordinating transportation and vaccine delivery 
  • Social engagement: New partnership with a hotel group that is helping with a Friendly Callers program
To best support you in these challenging times and in the future, we need information on the realities your agency is facing right now, and what you think you will need a little further down the road. Your answers to this 5-10 minute poll will allow us to align our programmatic and policy work to reflect those realities. We will share the results and highlight case studies to help you in your work.
