    Our History

    The federal government passed the Older Americans Act in 1965. This Act was designed to remove individual, social, economic and physical barriers in order to help elders maintain independence and dignity in environments of their own choosing. The 1973 amendments created Area Agencies on Aging. The Central Coast Area Agency on Aging was created in March, 1975.
