State Plan on Aging

At least every four years, AoA requires CDA to submit a new State Plan on Aging outlining California's goals and objectives to serve older persons. The State Plan was developed with input from the public, AAAs, California Commission on Aging, State Legislature, and State, Federal and local departments and agencies on issues affecting older individuals. This plan is required by AoA in order for the State to receive federal OAA funding.
