NYS to Host Next MPA Town Hall in Hauppauge

The NYS Department of Health (DOH) and Office for the Aging (SOFA) have announced the next Master Plan for Aging (MPA) Town Hall, scheduled for Tues., Feb. 27th from 2-4 p.m. at LGBT Network, an accessible facility located at 125 Kennedy Drive in Hauppauge.

Registration is required to attend the Town Hall in person or to access the virtual livestream.

These public engagement sessions are designed for New Yorkers to learn more about the status of the MPA and to provide their feedback on how the final plan would best serve the older adults in their communities.

DOH and SOFA are also soliciting feedback via a statewide public survey to help shape the strategies and priorities of the MPA. Members are encouraged to complete the survey prior to the newly extended Feb. 29th deadline and to share widely among staff, residents and families, and community networks.

Additionally, LeadingAge NY staff and members are continuing their participation in the MPA’s issue-focused workgroups to develop stakeholder recommendations reflective of member priorities. A final report of stakeholder recommendations, informed by feedback received during Town Halls and via the survey, is expected in July 2024. The final MPA is due to be issued in early January 2025. Please feel free to contact LeadingAge NY staff to provide input and recommendations for inclusion in the MPA.
