Key Takeaways

  • Read NCOA's 2021 issue brief outlining the rationale for FY22 investments in the health and economic security of older adults.

  • At NCOA, we believe aging with dignity shouldn't be a stroke of luck.

  • To ensure older Americans have the resources to age with dignity, NCOA looks for Congress to invest in community-based programs and initiatives that helps older adults improve their health and strengthen their economic security.

Community-based programs that help older adults improve their health and strengthen their economic security enable seniors to maintain their independence and remain in their own homes and communities. Investments in these initiatives save taxpayers’ dollars by reducing expenditures for mandatory programs such as Medicare and Medicaid.

NCOA priority programs for FY 2022 investments include:

  1. Older Americans Act programs;
  2. Falls Prevention;
  3. Chronic Disease Self-Management Education; and
  4. the Medicare State Health Insurance Assistance Program.

This 2021 NCOA issue brief outlines the rationale for FY22 investments in the health and economic security of older adults, and also outlines NCOA's priority programs for the year.
