The Older Americans Act (OAA) funds critical services that keep older adults healthy and independent—services like meals, job training, senior centers, health promotion, benefits enrollment, caregiver support, transportation, and more.

In March 2020, legislation to reauthorize the Act was passed by Congress with unanimous, bipartisan support. NCOA praised the bill’s enactment and noted the inclusion of our priorities.
