Lilly Hummel

On April 19, 2016, President Obama signed the reauthorization of The Older Americans Act (OAA), which promotes the well-being of older individuals by providing services and programs designed to help them live independently in their homes and communities. The Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration on Aging oversees the majority of OAA-funded programs, including supportive services, congregate and home-delivered nutrition services, family caregiver support and the long-term care ombudsman program, among many others. These grants to states and organizations are a critical component of long term services and supports.
