Register Now to Attend an MPA Community Engagement Event in Your Area

Registration information is now available for the next two in a series of Master Plan for Aging (MPA) community engagement events being hosted across the State by the NYS Department of Health (DOH) and Office for the Aging (SOFA).

Registration is required for these events, which will be broadcast live online to allow for greater participation:

The next Listening Session will be held in Utica on Mon., Nov. 20th from 1-2:30 p.m. in Wilcox Hall on the Mohawk Valley Community College campus. Register to attend in person or to view live online.

The next Town Hall will be held in NYC (Harlem) on Wed., Dec. 6th from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. at the ARC A. Phillip Randolph Senior Center. Register to attend in person or to view live online. You can also download the flyer to help spread awareness of this important event.

The 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 could best serve the older adults in their communities, ultimately helping to drive the ongoing development of issue-focused stakeholder recommendations.

Final recommendations for the Governor’s consideration will be submitted in 2024, and the Governor is expected to issue the final MPA in early 2025.

Additionally, DOH and SOFA are asking for 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 Dec. 31st deadline and to share widely among their staff, residents and families, and community networks to help ensure that the final MPA reflects and serves their needs.

Take the survey online, and find PDF versions of the survey in multiple languages here. Alternatively, those requiring bulk mailing of paper copies should reach out to MPA@health.ny.gov and specify their preferred language.
