Since 1998, the Kent County Senior Millage has helped fund services that help older adults remain in their own homes and communities as they age. Services like meal delivery, home modification, transportation, assistance with household chores, small home repair, wellness, dental, legal services and even help with finances offer seniors the support they need to continue living independent lives.
Kent County contracts with the Area Agency on Aging of Western Michigan to administer the millage dollars. In 2018, the millage provides $10,612,915 in funding to contract 30 agencies for 52 unique services. You can see all of the services availabe in Kent County by going here.

To qualify for Kent County Senior Millage services, one must be at least 60 years old and a resident of Kent County.
Co-payments may be required for individuals whose incomes are above $24,280 or couples whose incomes are above $32,920 (for 2018). Co-payments are based on income. All co-payments and donations are used to expand services to more Kent County seniors.
