Applying for funding Local agencies on aging are required to award a fixed percentage of Title III funding to support priority areas that are established through the Older Americans Act, Connecticut’s State Plan on Aging and the OAA’s Area Plan. In addition, the OAA prioritizes services to older adults with the greatest economic and social needs. See the section on the Older Americans Act and Title III funding for more information.
