Family Pathways receives funding for Aging Services program expansion
Central MN Council on Aging awards a Federal Older Americans Act (OAA) grant.
North Branch, MN, September, 2015:
Family Pathways is pleased to announce that we were awarded supplemental funding for our Aging Services program under “Title III” of the Older Americans Act. This means that we will have grant funding to supplement our individual contributions and business/community donations so that we can reach more people who need information, education, action planning, and other services as they work towards their goals of healthy aging in place or helping an elder or spouse or other family members’ situation.
The Older Americans Act (OAA) funds critical services that keep older adults healthy and independent—services like meals, job training, senior centers, caregiver support, transportation, health promotion, benefits enrollment, and more.
The Minnesota Board on Aging, through the Central Minnesota Council on Aging, awarded Family Pathways a Federal Older Americans Act grant to expand current services offered and also to add some additional services. Services offered under this program are caregiver support, transportation, caregiver education, social group respite, and homemaker & chore services.
