On January 10, 2022, Governor Gavin Newsom released the 2022-23 proposed budget. The proposal includes several program changes that impact services for older adults and people with disabilities.
This brief, updated from August 2020, highlights states that have a Master Plan for Aging, provides examples of key elements of those plans, and discusses how states without a Master Plan can get started. A Master Plan for Aging is a blueprint that: a) includes planning for 10 or more years; b) is often led by a governor with other executive and legislative leaders; and c) is developed to guide the restructuring of state and local policy, programs, and funding toward aging well in the community.

We believe aging is a personal, positive journey

As Americans live longer, it is time for creative solutions so that older adults, families, and communities are supported by health care, services and supports, and financing.

To that end, we at The SCAN Foundation build awareness about people's experiences and challenges. We prototype and pilot efforts in real time. We enable novel partnerships between unlikely groups to find common ground.
