Purpose/Background

Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) are mandated by the Older Americans Act of 1965 (OAA), as amended, to serve as advocates for older persons and to be visible focal points for accessing the service delivery system within their designated planning and service areas. The major responsibility of a AAA is to foster the development of a comprehensive and coordinated service system to serve persons age 60 and older who are in need. The basic mission of AAA is to help older Americans to remain independent in their own homes and communities for as long as possible.

Every four years, the Colorado State Unit on Aging (SUA) requires each of the 16 Colorado Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) to submit a plan of action for the following four years. The Boulder County Area Agency on Aging (BCAAA) Area Plan for July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2023, can be found at bouldercounty.gov or by clicking here.

The mission of the Boulder County Area Agency on Aging is to deliver, fund, and advocate for services that promote well-being, independence, and dignity for older adults, people with disabilities, family and informal caregivers, and veterans in Boulder County. BCAAA practices a strengths-based and solutions-focused philosophy toward strategic planning and service delivery.

Boulder County Area Agency on Aging is seeking proposals from qualified organizations interested in contracting with BCAAA to provide services for older adults funded by the Older Americans Act (OAA) and State Funding for Senior Services (SFSS) to eligible older adults age 60 and older, and their caregivers in Boulder County.
