Information Memoranda

AoA-IM-FY-97-09

TO : STATE AND AREA AGENCIES ADMINISTERING PLANS UNDER THE OLDER AMERICANS ACT

SUBJECT : Fiscal Year 1995 State Program Report for Titles III and VII of the Older Americans Act (Revised)

LEGAL AND RELATED
REFERENCES : Older Americans Act of 1965, As Amended

The purpose of this memorandum is to provide the attached State Program Report for Titles III and VII of the Older Americans Act. This report was compiled from data submitted to us, by the state agencies on aging, in compliance with the new reporting requirements that became effective in Fiscal Year (FY) 1995. This report is designed to provide summary highlights of Titles III and VII program performance, including persons served, services provided, services expenditures, providers used, state and area agency staffing, developmental accomplishments and the use of senior centers. Both national and state specific summaries are included.

This is the first time the annual State Program Report includes information on individual state activities and performance supported by Titles III and VII. As required, a separate report to Congress on the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program, containing detailed information, is being completed. This report provides only a brief synopsis of the accomplishments of the Ombudsman program.

Implementation of the new reporting requirements is a multi-year process, with the FY 1995 performance report representing the first step toward reporting, by the aging network, in a more client-centered manner. Considerable effort has been made to review the data and, as needed, to consult with the states on various matters. We anticipate that the quality and accuracy of the data will improve over time, as more experience is gained with the new requirements. The cooperation of all state and area agencies in this important national effort is appreciated.
