Aging and Adult Services Agency - 391-0645-18

Description of Agency

The Aging and Adult Services Agency (AASA) is Michigan’s designated State unit on aging, formed under the Older Michiganians Act of 1981. AASA operates under the authority of the federal Older Americans Act, which was signed into law in 1965 to meet the diverse needs of the growing number of older adults in the United States. AASA’s mission is to provide Statewide leadership, direction, and resources to support Michigan’s aging, adult services, and disability networks, with the aim of helping residents live with dignity and purpose. Michigan’s aging network is composed of a partnership between AASA, 16 regional area agencies on aging (AAAs), and more than 1,300 local service providers offering older and vulnerable adult and family caregiver services. AASA is responsible for addressing older adult issues; facilitating and funding programs and services for older adults; and supervising, monitoring, assessing, and evaluating the services provided by AAAs. For fiscal years 2016 and 2017, AASA expended $94.1 million and $93.9 million, respectively.
