2023 Area Plan Contract

The 2023 Area Plan Contract represents Monmouth County’s plan for serving residents age 60 and over. Monmouth County is proud to offer many innovative services and programs that support our older adults.

The Monmouth County Office on Aging (OOA) was designated as an Area Agency on Aging with the purpose of planning for, receiving and distributing aging funds and resources. The Area Plan Contract is regularly reviewed and updated to ensure the needs of the elderly in Monmouth County are met – with special consideration given to the needs of low-income, minority and frail elderly as required by the Older Americans Act.

The Agency inventories resources in Monmouth County and develops programs for combining available resources from both the public and private sectors in order to strengthen existing services or implement new ones. It also offers technical assistance to social service providers for seniors, enters into contracts with agencies to strengthen gap-filling and supportive services, and is responsible for monitoring, assisting and evaluating those programs to which it allocates grant funding. The OOA is supported in its endeavors by a vital, talented group of individuals who are appointed to the Advisory Council of the Agency. Individuals 60 years of age or older comprise the majority of this committee.
