ICYMI – Maryland Executive Order for MPA

On January 3, 2024, Maryland Governor Wes Moore signed an Executive Order establishing the Longevity Ready Maryland Initiative. The Executive Order directs the Maryland Department of Aging to prioritize the well-being of older people, people living with disabilities, and caregivers across all of state government, proactively addressing the needs arising from a growing older adult population.

The plan will coordinate and build upon existing efforts across state agencies, private and philanthropic sectors, and other stakeholders to tackle challenges throughout the lifespan, including access to employment opportunities, a robust care workforce, adequate caregiver support, and equitable health care. The Longevity Ready Maryland plan will take a whole-of-life approach and will be published in mid-2025. Read the Executive Order here
