Master Plan for Aging Activities Temporarily Postponed Due to COVID-19

In light of the COVID-19 developments, the California Department of Aging (CDA) is temporarily postponing Master Plan for Aging (MPA) activities until the end of March.  This will allow the CDA team to focus on protecting California’s older adults, people with disabilities, families, caregivers, and providers. We also want to ensure that you have the time you may need to tend to professional priorities and to care for yourselves and loved ones. CDA will provide further updates on the MPA process in due course.

Please note that the following upcoming activities are postponed (future dates TBD):

  • March 17 & April 23 Equity Work Group Meeting
  • March 19 & April 28 Research Subcommittee Meeting
  • May 18 Stakeholder Advisory Committee Meeting
  • March 18 – April 8 Webinar Wednesdays
  • Final reviews of the Long-Term Services and Supports Stakeholder Report, as well as the report’s submission to the Administration

We are grateful for your understanding and continued partnership.

About

Recognizing that California’s over-65 population is projected to grow to 8.6 million by 2030, Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order calling for the creation of a Master Plan for Aging to be developed by October 1, 2020. The Master Plan will serve as a blueprint that can be used by state government, local communities, private organizations and philanthropy to build environments that promote an age friendly California
