AAA CARES Act Recovery Assistance
The Area Agency on Aging (AAA) is responsible for the establishment of a comprehensive, coordinated system of community-based supportive services and nutrition services for the elders in our region.
During April 2020, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced $955 million in grants from the Administration for Community Living (ACL) to help meet the needs of older adults and people with disabilities as communities implement measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 across the country. The grants will fund home-delivered meals; care services in the home; respite care and other support to families and caregivers; including information about and referral to these supports. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act provides supplemental funding for programs authorized by the Older Americans Act of 1965 and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014. Through these programs, a network of community-based organizations, such as Area Agencies on Aging, Centers for Independent Living, senior centers, faith-based organizations, and other non-profits provide a vast array of resources and services to help older adults and people with disabilities stay healthy and live independently in their communities across the United States.
