SEAGO Area Plan on Aging
The SEAGO Area Agency on Aging is developing a four-year Area Plan on Aging for fiscal years 2023-2027. The new Area Plan will go into effect on July 1, 2023. The Area Plan serves as the document that identifies priority needs, goals, objectives, funding, and advocacy efforts. The Area Agency region VI will undertake 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 how 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 6 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 seriously impact the current service delivery system and funding for senior programs. Therefore we request that seniors, service providers, families, caregivers, and all interested in aging issues attend and provide input to make the plan comprehensive and address real needs.
SEAGO-AAA will hold regional public hearings to gather additional community input. Sign up for our mailing list below to be informed (via email) of dates and locations as they become available.
