4180 Commission on Aging
Program Descriptions


The Commission's statutory responsibilities include: assisting with the development of the Department of Aging's State Plan on Aging, monitoring the plan's progress, and information-gathering. As part of its information-gathering responsibility, the CCoA holds meetings and public hearings around the state to address the issues and concerns of older Californians, their families, and caregivers. The Commission uses the information gathered from these meetings and public hearings to develop initiatives and projects focused on older Californians. CCoA also assisted with the development and implementation of the state's Alzheimer's Disease Plan and administers the Area Agency on Aging Council of California (TACC). TACC is supported solely by voluntary contributions made through a check-off box included on the state income tax form.
