Many of the home and community-based services available to older adults in southwestern Ohio and the rest of the country are mandated by the Older Americans Act (OAA). Title III, the largest program in the Act, serves as the funding source for the programs and services state and local aging agencies must provide to older adults in their service areas.
In southwestern Ohio, Council on Aging uses Title III funds to advocate for older adults and help them remain within their own homes and communities. Money goes to senior centers and organizations who provide services such as transportation, congregate meals, caregiver support, legal help, and wellness education. COA also combines Title III dollars with state funds and county tax levies to provide home care services to seniors who are not eligible for PASSPORT.
