Common Ground on Older Americans Act Reauthorization

I began early this year hosting calls for a broad group of aging advocates a couple of times per month to develop a statement that the largest group of advocates could agree on regarding legal assistance in reauthorization of the Older Americans Act.

The product is the following statement regarding legal assistance in reauthorization of the Older Americans Act.
