The OAA was enacted to help older adults remain in their homes and communities. In FY 2008, about 5% of the nation's adults 60 and over received key aging services through Title III of the OAA, incl. meals and home-based care. Studies project large increases in the number of adults who will be eligible for services in the future amid likely gov't. budget constraints. This report determined: (1) what is known about the need for home- and community-based services like those funded by OAA and the potential unmet need for these services; (2) how have agencies used their funds, including Recovery Act funds, to meet program objectives, and (3) how gov't. and local agencies measured need and unmet need. Charts and tables. A print on demand report.
