Under Title III of the Older Americans Act, Senior Resources provides funding for home and community based services. While not all services are funded in all areas, the following is a list of the various services which may be funded with Older Americans Act funding.
For information on the availability of the services in your area, please call Senior Resources at 860-887-3561 or 1-800-690-6998.
Senior Resources provides services to assist older individuals, individuals with disabilities, their families and their caregivers. In addition, we provide funding to community-based agencies for services such as adult day care, homemakers, home health aides and transportation.
Senior Resources is the designated Area Agency on Aging in Eastern Connecticut and as such is responsible for distributing Title IIIB funds from the Older Americans Act to community-based agencies to provide services to individuals age 60 and older. Funds are allocated to encourage comprehensive and coordinated systems to serve older individuals to:
- Secure and maintain maximum independence and dignity in a home environment;
- Remove individual and social barriers to economic and personal independence;
- Provide a continuum of care for vulnerable older individuals, and
- Secure the opportunity for older individuals to receive managed in-home and community-based long-term care services.
Title IIID funds of the Older Americans Act for Evidence Based Health Promotion Programs are also available.

- Summary of Area Plan Goals
The federal Older Americans Act is one of the primary funding sources of activities provided by Senior Resources. Area agencies on aging, like Senior Resources, conduct listening sessions, distribute surveys and review state, local and national efforts to identify the needs of older adults and gaps in services to meet those needs. From that research, a four year Area Plan is developed which outlines the activities which will be conducted over the four year period to provide a comprehensive and coordinated system of services. The following are the priorities for the period of October 2017 – September 2021.
