Older Americans Act Grant Funded Programs
Every three years, the Office on Aging & Disabled develops an Area Plan for Senior Services in Cumberland County as required by the Federal Older Americans Act. The Office requests proposals from local agencies to administer needed programs and services for Cumberland County elderly residents and contracts with those agencies awarded contracts through the Cumberland County Board of Chosen Freeholders.
