Johnson Center for Philanthropy Final Report
The Older Americans Act requires every Agency on Aging to conduct a needs assessment every three years to ensure the provision of funding and services are meeting the needs of the target population.
In the spring of 2016, the Johnson Center for Philanthropy’s Community Research Institute (CRI) at Grand Valley State University conducted a community needs assessment on behalf of AAAWM. The purpose of this assessment is to help the agency better plan and align program and services to alleviate poverty, promote well-being, and enhance self-sufficiency for older adults within their service areas. The results of the needs assessment are available to view in the final report.
