AoA and OAA Programs Achieve Highest Rating from White House Budget Office

The White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) recently released the results of its Program Assessment Rating Tool (PART) assessment of Older Americans Act (OAA) programs.  AoA programs were classified as “Effective.” This is the highest rating and has been awarded to only 18 percent of the government programs evaluated by OMB. According to the assessment on Expectmore.Gov, AoA and OAA programs have a clear purpose and are well-managed, efficiently provide high quality home and community based services, and promote the well-being and independence of the elderly.  This achievement is the result of the outstanding performance at all levels of the Aging Network.  Thank you for working hard everyday to improve the lives of older Americans.
