10.1  Aging Services

The Administration on Aging’s Aging Services advances the concerns and interests of older people, and works with and through the national aging services network to promote the development of comprehensive and coordinated systems of home and community-based care that are responsive to the needs and preferences of older people and their caregivers. The network is comprised of 56 State and Territorial Units on Aging, 629 Area Agencies on Aging, 256 Indian Tribal and Native Hawaiian organizations, nearly 20,000 direct service providers, and hundreds of thousands of volunteers. AoA’s core programs, authorized under the Older Americans Act (OAA), help seniors remain at home for as long as possible. These services complement existing medical and health care systems, help prevent hospital readmissions and support some of life’s most basic functions, such as bathing or preparing food.

  • Supported Strategic Goal:  Advance the health, safety, and well-being of the American people
  • Supported Strategic Objective:   Improve the accessibility and quality of supportive services for people with disabilities and older adults

10.2  Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

The Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities’ programs advance the concerns and interests of people with developmental disabilities and their families, working through a network that includes—in each state and Territory—State Councils on Developmental Disabilities, state Protection and Advocacy systems, University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, and Projects of National Significance. AIDD programs fund capacity-building and systems change efforts to ensure that people with developmental disabilities and their families participate in the design of, and have access to, needed community services, individualized supports, and other forms of assistance that promote self-determination, independence, productivity, and integration and inclusion in all facets of community life.
