Area Plan

Area Plan is the grant application submitted by an Area Agency on Aging (AAA) to the State Unit on Aging in order to receive funds.  The Area Plan contains provisions required by the Older Americans Act, and the Governor’s Office of Elderly Affairs (GOEA).  It includes commitments that the Area Agency will administer activities so funded in accordance with all requirements.  The Area Plan also contains a detailed statement of the manner in which the Area Agency is developing a comprehensive and coordinated system throughout the planning and service area for all allowable services.  An Area Agency on Aging may receive contracts and enter into subcontracts under the Older Americans Act only under an approved area plan.

A major objective of the Area Plan is to help AAA produce quality planning that will enable them to move fully attain the goals set forth in the Older Americans Act,  that is, to develop greater capacities to provide comprehensive and coordinated services systems to serve older people and to assist in using available resources more efficiently.  Instead of focusing on the production of a compliance document, AAAs should focus on quality planning for the next four years.
