Area Agencies On Aging

An Area Agency on Aging (AAA) is a public or nonprofit private agency or office designated by the state to carry out provisions of the Older Americans Act at the local level.
The role of AAAs is to act as a catalyst in linking service providers to assure their response to the needs of older people and their families. The AAAs collaborate with a variety of public, private, voluntary, religious, and fraternal organizations to develop needed services where they don't exist.

The general responsibilities of the eight Nebraska AAAs include:

  • Planning a comprehensive and coordinated system of services to meet the needs of the area's older citizens and reporting to the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services - Division on Aging.
  • Technical assistance, monitoring, funding, and coordination of local programs, services. and activities.
  • Contracts with and referrals to local agencies that provide services to the older population.
  • Care management for frail elderly citizens who need supportive services to remain independent and in their own homes.
  • Liaison with local elected officials.
  • Training at the local level.
  • Direct contact with program participants.
  • Legislative interaction.
  • Nutrition services through support of senior centers and home-delivered meals programs.
  • Senior employment programs.
  • Volunteer opportunities.
  • Community education and public information activities.
