Agency's Advisory Council



The Older Americans Act of 1965 and its subsequent amendments provides for the establishment of a citizens advisory council to each Area Agency on Aging (AAA). The purpose of the council is to advise the AAA on all matters relating to the development and implementation of services for older adults, and guidance in the development and administration of its area plan. It is authorized to "review and comment" on all community policies, programs and actions with respect to older persons. Over half of the member-ship of the local advisory council (the Area Planning Advisory Council or APAC) consists of older adults. Other members include service providers, local elected officials and citizens interested in the needs of the elderly.
