Why the Older Americans Act Matters

Key to home

On July 14, 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Older Americans Act into law. Over the past 50 years, the aging network established and funded by the Act has helped millions of older adults live and thrive in the communities of their choice. The OAA was just reauthorized in the Senate this month, which is a great way to celebrate this 50th Anniversary! Learn more about why the Act is so important for seniors and communities across the country.
