Federal Tools for Aging and Livable Communities (CM | 1.5)
June 8, 2012 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Transforming our communities so that they prosper, thrive and grow to their full potential by making it possible for all people to achieve and maintain well-being has become particularly challenging with the economic crisis confronting our nation. Financial distress, budget cuts, and limited resources are undermining and eliminating programs and services, as well as reshaping the policies that impact the most vulnerable in our society. Amid this chaotic environment, there are initiatives that are demonstrating leadership in addressing the needs and improving the lives of older Americans. This session will explore promising efforts to mobilize and innovate Federal solutions to aging issues cross-agency and intra-agency such as: creating a single agency entry point, providing a forum for dialogue or serving as a repository for policy and programs related to aging.
