Older Americans Act

Renewing the act for our nation's seniors

Tell Congress to support the OAA

Take action

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

The Act is overdue for reauthorization—and we’re urging Congress to seize this opportunity to update and renew its commitment to these programs and those they serve.

Review the latest actions in Congress, read about the recommendations that NCOA and others have proposed, and learn more about the Aging Network programs and strategies supported by the OAA.
