Description: According to Older Americans Act State Performance Reports, there are over 11,000 senior centers in the United States. Senior centers are valued partners in the Aging Network that support community living by keeping older adults active, engaged, informed and healthy. Many senior centers serve as important focal points for the delivery of comprehensive services and offer programs that can help reduce the incidence of social isolation and loneliness among older adults. Given the changing aging demographics, senior centers will need to adapt to the "new" older adult and create a new and modern experience. This issue has only been heightened by the COVID pandemic which caused many senior centers to close and rapidly create alternative programming to meet the needs of the older adults in their communities. To better ensure that senior centers have the tools and resources necessary to develop and implement programs that meet the current and future needs of the Nation’s older adults, the Administration on Aging is establishing a Modernizing Senior Centers Resource Center. AoA is seeking applications to fund one cooperative agreement that will provide technical assistance and training as well as serve as a repository for innovative programs and strategies that can be successfully replicated in local senior centers.
