Countywide Area Plan for Older Adults:
Your Plan, Your Voice!

Every four years, the Area Agency on Aging (AAA) prepares a Countywide Area Plan for Older Adults (CWAP) that strategizes decisions, investments, and improvements throughout Alameda County for residents aged 55+. The services are provided by the AAA along with our network of community partners, which include the Advisory Commission on Aging, community-based organizations, public agencies, and the private sector. 

Mark Your Calendar: If you're an older adult in Alameda County, care about someone who is, or are wondering what your life as a senior will look like, you can make a difference! 

Don't have time to read the CWAP draft before the hearing? No problem! We still want to see you there and share ideas for bringing Alameda County closer to our goals as an Age Friendly Community

CWAP Public Forums: Thanks to our Board of Supervisors and everyone in the community who participated in our five public forums about the CWAP (one in each County district). If you missed them or want to refresh your memory, you can watch the recordings:

Background: The CWAP's direction is steered by a committee that includes representatives from community-based organizations, cities, consumers, academics, and other stakeholders. Planning also includes multiple departments within Alameda County, including the Social Services Agency, Health Care Services Agency, Public Health, Behavioral Health Department, and other agencies.
