2016-2020 Area Plan

The Older Americans Act of 1965 and the Older Californians Act of 1996 (with amendments) established California‚Äôs 33 Area Agencies on Aging to serve as leaders and advocates in their communities for issues affecting older persons and their caregivers.  Area 1 Agency on Aging (A1AA) serves Humboldt and Del Norte Counties, representing more than 32,000 people age 60 and over. A1AA is responsible for developing an Area Plan which is a four-year document that establishes goals and objectives based on the following:

  1. Needs assessment activities conducted by A1AA and others (may include surveys, interviews, focus groups, public hearings.)

  2. Targeting mandates specified by law (includes key groups of people identified by the Older Americans/Older Californians Acts as having high needs for service.)

  3. Adequate proportion/minimum percentages required by law (specifies the broad categories of services that are to be provided to high need groups.)

  4. Funding constraints (taking into consideration that funding is limited and not all services and needs can be met.)
