The new Area Plan will go into effect on July 1, 2017. The Area Plan serves as the planning document which identifies priority needs, goals, objectives, funding and advocacy efforts that will be undertaken by the Region 6 Area Agency on Aging and our provider network in developing, implementing and building collaborations and programs for seniors in Cochise, Graham, Greenlee, and Santa Cruz Counties for the next four years. The Area Plan describes the manner in which the Area Agency on Aging plans to utilize state and federal funds, and how it will carry out its administrative responsibilities. The Area Plan is viewed as "the blueprint for action" which represents a commitment by the Area Agency on Aging that it will fulfill its role as the planner/catalyst/advocate on behalf of older persons in Region VI as required under the Older Americans Act.
The SEAGO Area Agency on Aging Administration, Board of Directors and Advisory Council realizes that the economic decline and system changes occurring daily on national, state, and local levels will have a serious impact on the current service delivery system and funding for senior programs. Therefor we request that seniors, service providers, families, caregivers, and all interested in senior issues attend and provide input to make the plan a comprehensive one that addresses real needs. See below for a schedule of upcoming public hearings. For additional information please contact Laura Villa, AAA Program Manager, at 520.432.2528 x 208.
