State Master Plan for Aging Subcommittees Meet

Led by the Department of Health (DOH) and State Office for the Aging (SOFA), the State has convened eight subcommittees to provide input into its Master Plan for Aging (MPA). The subcommittees will be divided into work groups which will develop recommendations that will be presented to the Stakeholder Advisory Committee and the State Agency Council. The State envisions the MPA as both a blueprint and a call to action for healthy aging and long term care services. A preliminary report is planned for July 2023 and a final report by early 2024. The final MPA is scheduled for adoption in 2024.

The eight subcommittees are:

  1. Long-Term Services and Supports
  2. Home and Community-Based Services
  3. Formal Caregiving
  4. Informal Caregiving
  5. Health and Wellness
  6. Housing, Community Development, and Transportation
  7. Economic Security
  8. Safety, Security, and Technology

Most or all of the subcommittees have met once as of this writing and are beginning to prioritize the issues they will cover and the work groups they will establish. Workforce, financing, consumer choice and access, and consumer challenges with navigating systems cut across all work groups.

More information about the MPA is available here and here. You may sign up for the MPA mailing list here to receive updates or leave a comment for the State team.
