Multisector Plan for Aging

Strategic Framework for a National Plan on Aging – Just Released (May, 2024)

HHS releases Strategic Framework for a National Plan on Aging 

Many states have started developing multisector plans to improve their ability to meet the needs of their older populations. Now, the federal government is building on state action by leading the development of a national plan on aging. 

On May 30, HHS released a report to Congress titled, “Aging in the United States: A Strategic Framework for a National Plan on Aging.” The report was developed by leaders and experts from 16 federal agencies and departments working together through the Interagency Coordinating Committee on Healthy Aging and Age-Friendly Communities (ICC). The report outlines the approach our nation will take to prepare for the future. It is the initial step in the development of a national plan to improve the aging experience for older adults and create age-friendly communities that appreciate their contributions, sustain health and wellbeing at all ages, recognize and support family caregivers, and value and reward the work of the professionals who provide in-home and community-based care. Read the full report here.

The efforts to include the voices of older adults and stakeholders are supported by the National Plan for Aging Community Engagement Collaborative,  which includes West Health, The SCAN Foundation and The John A. Hartford Foundation.
