PDA Announces changes to 2020-21 SCC Grant Program

Due to COVID-19, the Department of Aging will not be issuing Senior Community Center grants through a competitive process for grant year 2020/2021.  In an effort to benefit Area Agency on Aging-affiliated senior community centers adversely impacted by the pandemic, the Department will split the $2,000,000 in available funding equally between all qualified centers as described in the attached 2020/2021 Grant Announcement.

PA State Plan on Aging 2020-2024

The 2020-2024 State Plan on Aging, effective on October 1, 2020, contains five state plan goals -- designed to address all initiatives that the department has or will undertake to improve aging services in Pennsylvania. Those goals are:
  • Strengthen aging network's capacity, promote innovation and best practices, and build efficiencies to respond to the growing and diversifying aging population.
  • Improve services for older adults and the ability to advocate for them by using evidence-informed planning, committing to data integrity and being accountable for results.
  • Establish and enhance efforts to support healthy living, active engagement and a sense of community for all older Pennsylvanians.
  • Emphasize a citizen-first culture that provides outreach, embraces diversity, and honors individual choice.
  • Advocate for the rights of older adults and ensure their safety and dignity by raising awareness of and responding effectively to incidences of abuse, injury, exploitation, violence and neglect.
