The Older American’s Act of 1965 (OAA) provides funding for services(under 'Title III') for adults age 60 and older. The Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging is responsible for the administration of these services in the following counties: Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette, Licking, Madison, Pickaway and Union.
Services include meals programs, homemaker and personal care aides, transportation, supportive services*** and care at an adult day center.
COAAA has awarded Older Americans Act Title III funds to the community organizations included on the list below. Many of these organizations have other funding that allows them to provide services in addition to those listed. Waiting lists can occur for OAA services. When contacting these organizations, be sure to describe your situation so they can better meet your needs through the range of assistance available.
There are no financial criteria to meet to receive OAA Title III services. A voluntary donation is suggested but not required. The suggested donation is based on the self-reported income of the person receiving services. Donations are used to extend the funding available for services.
