AgeWays Nonprofit Senior Services is holding a virtual public hearing at 12 p.m. Friday, May 17, to gather input about the use of federal and state funding earmarked for senior services in the 2025 fiscal year.

The Annual Implementation Plan forum will take feedback on plans for spending $26 million during fiscal year 2025 in the six-county region served by the agency (Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, St. Clair and Washtenaw counties). Older adults, family caregivers, senior advocates, senior care professionals and any other interested members of the public are invited to attend the forum and to offer comment.

Public input will help shape the plan, but the largest share of dollars goes to home-delivered and group dining, along with in-home services.

You can join using this link: tinyurl.com/AgeWaysListen. Interested parties may also phone in to the meeting at (312) 626-6799/Meeting ID: 844 242 4714.

The draft plan will be available for review at ageways.org on May 3. Written comments will be accepted from May 3 to June 3. Send to Taylor Clark, 29100 Northwestern Highway, Suite 400, Southfield, MI 48034. Comments can also be submitted to Taylor by email at tclark@AgeWays.org. For those who wish to review the AIP in a language other than English, call 800-852-7795, choose Option 3, and request Taylor Clark.
