Make Your Opinion Heard

Area Agencies on Aging are mandated under the federal Older Americans Act to serve as visible advocates on behalf of  seniors. The Area Agency on Aging 1-B works to represent the interests of older persons by educating public officials, consumer advocates and the community about older adult needs. The AAA 1-B monitors proposed legislation and polices at the federal, state and local levels, with an emphasis on health, housing, transportation, income supports, consumer protection and long term care.
