Medicaid & Long-Term Care

The State Unit on Aging oversees funding to help Nebraskans stay in their homes. These funding sources include the Older Americans Act, the Nebraska Community Aging Services Act, and the Aging & Disability Resource Center Act.

Area Agencies on Aging and other providers deliver a wide range of services to the community. These services promote health, safety, and long-term independence. Services may be available to you if you are an older adult, a person with a disability, or a caregiver. ​

​State Unit

The Nebraska State Plan on Aging outlines goals, objectives, and measures, for aging services for a four-year period. The plan serves as the agreement between the Department and the Administration for Community Living, to provide aging services in Nebraska, funded by federal grants and state appropriations. The current state plan covers October 1, 2019, through September 30, 2023. (Read Nebraska's Aging State Plan.)

​In preparation for the next four-year State Plan on Aging (FFY 2024-2027), the State Unit on Aging engaged the University of Nebraska - Omaha, Department of Gerontology, College of Public Affairs and Community Service, to conduct listening sessions and surveys in 2022. (Read UNO's Report.)
