The Older Americans Act (OAA) provides critical services—such as home-delivered and congregate meals, family caregiver support, in-home assistance, preventive health services, transportation, job training, protection from abuse, and other supportive services—that help about 11 million older adults stay as independent as possible. In fiscal year 2014, OAA federal funding was $1.88 billion. Funding has been relatively flat over the past decade, failing to keep up with inflation and demand from a rapidly expanding older population.
