Mission

The State Office for the Aging is responsible for promoting, coordinating and administering State, Federal and local programs and services to the elderly aged 60 and older and the families or other caregivers. The Office provides leadership and direction to 59 Area Agencies on Aging and various other local programs and providers that comprise the networks of services to the elderly.

Budget Highlights

The Executive Budget recommends $241.6 million for Aging. This is a decrease of $1.4 million from the FY 2014 budget. The decrease is a result of adjustments to appropriations to reflect current spending projections and to realign authority for IT positions with the Office of Information Technology Services.

The Executive Budget recommends a workforce of 95 FTEs for the Agency. This is an increase of 5 FTEs supported with Federal Revenues.

Major budget actions include:

  • Deferring the planned FY 2015 2.0 percent cost of living increase for certain aging service providers.
  • Investing $250,000 to train local Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) staff.
