Consumer Voice Submits Comments to ACL on Older Americans Act Program Regulations

August 23, 2023

Consumer Voice submitted comments to the Administration for Community Living (ACL)'s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking: Older Americans Act.  This is the first major update to most Older Americans Act (OAA) program regulations in nearly 35 years.  Much has changed in the provision of services during that time, and the Older Americans Act has been amended by Congress seven times since 1988.  ACL is seeking to align the regulations to the current statute and reflect the needs of today's older adults.  In addition, the rule addresses new issues that have emerged since the last update, and clarifies a number of requirements.  To learn more about the NPRM, visit https://acl.gov/OAArule.
