|The Aging Network in Nebraska is made up of individuals and organizations in the public and private sectors. Funded by the Older Americans Act, the Nebraska Community Aging Services Act and the Nebraska Department of Health & Human Services, the State Unit on Aging has broad responsibilities for addressing the concerns of older Nebraskans.
The State Unit on Aging grants state and federal funds to the eight Area Agencies on Aging in Nebraska to support local programs and services. With the assistance of local individuals and advisory groups, each Area Agency on Aging determines needs and develops a plan to provide an appropriate array of services for its aging population.
In addition to its planning responsibilities, each Area Agency on Aging is a key source for information on available local resources and services. The Area Agencies have banded together as the Nebraska Association of Area Agencies on Aging to better fulfill their role as advocates.
Aging services are also provided through the Nebraska Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC), a coordinated network of organizations.
