District 5 Public Forum on the Countywide Area Plan for Older Adults

Every four years, the Area Agency on Aging (AAA) prepares a Countywide Area Plan for Older Adults (CWAP) that strategizes the provision of services for residents aged 55+ and brings Alameda County closer to our goals as an Age Friendly Community. The services are provided by the AAA along with our network of community partners, which include the Advisory Commission on Aging, community-based organizations, public agencies, and the private sector.

Planning for the 2024-2028 CWAP is underway, and your participation is crucial. By taking the CWAP Survey for Alameda County residents aged 55+, you help create an area plan that reflects your needs, your vision, and your perspective.

Join Supervisor Carson and AAA on Monday, October 30, 3:30 PM (in person or virtually) to learn more about the survey and share your input.

IN PERSON: Ed Roberts Campus, 3075 Adeline Street, Berkeley, CA 94703
