Oregon State Plan on Aging

​The State Plan on Aging is a plan for Oregon’s programs under the federal Older Americans Act of 1965. It provides new initiatives to serve all older adults equitably, and to help older adults transition out of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Plan also offers new initiatives for Older Americans Act programs offered by local Area Agencies on Aging.
