The public hearing will be held on
State Units on Aging are required to submit service plans to the U.S. Administration on Aging every three years. The plans detail service needs, establish priorities, and outline how each state plans to utilize federal Older Americans Act and state funding to accomplish established goals.
Anyone interested in senior issues may attend the public hearing. Written testimony can be submitted at the hearing or can be mailed to the attention of Assistant Commissioner Patricia Polansky, New Jersey Division of Aging and Community Services,
