Since 1999, 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 in-home services provide 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 2020, the millage is set to provide $12,033,000 in funding to contract 34 agencies for 57 unique services. You can view the 2020 KCSM Funding for each agency 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 $24,980 or couples whose incomes are above $33,820 (for 2019). Co-payments are based on income. All co-payments and donations are used to expand services to more Kent County seniors.
