Multisector Plan for Aging

Every state needs a Multisector Plan for Aging (MPA) to ensure that all Americans have access to coordinated care and support services that enable them to age with health, dignity and connection.

The Opportunity

America’s older-adult population is growing, and in many parts of the country, current infrastructure is not equipped to provide the range of services needed for the increasingly diverse population of older adults and people with disabilities, along with the caregivers that support them.

Every state develops its own MPA based on its unique characteristics, history, politics, and existing aging and disability initiatives.

What is an MPA?

An MPA is a 10+ year blueprint for restructuring state and local policies and convening a wide range of cross-sector stakeholders to collaboratively address the needs of older-adult populations.

MPAs are designed to create a coordinated system of high-quality care and support services that promote healthy aging, independent living, and social engagement, while also addressing issues related to healthcare, housing, transportation, and other social determinants of health.


Why an MPA?

By prioritizing the creation of an MPA, states can build a society that values and supports all members, regardless of age or ability, and ensures that they can live and age well in their communities.
