Serving America’s Older Adults – 2017 Area Agency on Aging National Survey Report

With a grant from the Administration on Aging within the Administration for Community
Living (ACL), the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) partnered with Scripps
Gerontology Center at Miami University of Ohio to conduct an online survey that gathers
information about AAA services, staffing, budgets and their evolving involvement in activities such as integrated care initiatives and partnerships with health care entities.
The National Survey of Area Agencies on Aging, conducted every two to three years, tracks important new trends in programs, services and funding affecting older Americans in communities across the country and serves as a barometer for new issues shaping the Aging Network.

This report summarizes findings from the National Survey of Area Agencies on Aging conducted

in 2016 that gathered information on staffing, budget and services, as well as new and innovative
initiatives underway at many AAAs across the country.
