In accordance with the Older Americans Act (Section 315(C)-I), the
Southeastern MN Area Agency on Aging (SEMAAA)
is allowed to submit a proposal to the Minnesota Board on Aging (MBA) to transfer Title III-B Supportive Services funds to the Area Plan administration for Program Development and Coordination Activities that will have a direct and positive impact on the enhancement of services for older persons in the southeastern region of Minnesota. SEMAAA is required to make the details of such proposals available to the general public for review and comment.
The Area Agency on Aging is proposing to use $113,010 in Title III-B funds to support Program Development and Coordination Activities during 2020 as a cost of Area Plan administration. The Minnesota Board on Aging policy allows up to 25% of these funds to be used for this purpose. The proposed amount represents 25% of the Area Agency on Aging’s new Title III-B direct service allotment.
