The Economic Crisis and Its Impact on State Aging Programs: Results of All-State Survey

Source: National Association of State Units on Aging, June 2009

From the press release:
The National Association of State Units on Aging (NASUA) released the findings today of its fourth economic survey of the state units on aging in the last year. The survey conducted in May 2009 revealed that despite the funding provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), 60 percent of states must reduce their agencies’ budgets for FY10.

While ARRA funding appeared to have the effect of allowing states to maintain services for food and nutrition programs, over 20 percent of the states indicated that they will have to resort to cutting back services to consumers. Those services include Older Americans Act programs, disability programs, Medicaid, and home- and community-based services and supports.
