In 2015, the Older Americans Act (OAA) celebrates 50 years of helping seniors age with dignity and independence in their homes and communities. Despite its successes, Congress has not updated (or “reauthorized”) the OAA since it expired in 2011. The Act must be reauthorized to continue supporting the 11 million older Americans who rely on it each year.
