AAA 1-B gathers recommendations on the distribution of state and federal dollars
Southfield, MI (April 29, 2013) — The Area Agency on Aging 1-B (AAA 1-B) is developing its multi-year plan for the distribution of approximately $20 million each year from 2013 to 2015 for services to older adults. To guide the development of this plan, older adults, caregivers and other interested individuals were invited to attend a community forum and have a voice in how older adult programs and services are provided in the counties that the AAA 1-B serves: Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, St. Clair and Washtenaw.
Community forums were held in Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland and St. Clair counties during the months of February and March. The forum scheduled in Washtenaw county was cancelled due to poor weather conditions. Interested parties from Washtenaw County were encouraged to attend the Monroe or Livingston county forums or submit feedback in writing.
The information provided at the forums is being used to help guide the AAA 1-B in the development of the Fiscal Year 2014-16 Area Plan. To view a reports on the feedback received at the community forums, please visit the 2013 Community Forums page.
