The Metropolitan Area Agency on Aging (MAAA) is the designated area agency on aging for the seven county metropolitan area. Area agencies on aging were established under the Older Americans Act (OAA) in 1973 to respond to the needs of Americans aged 60 and over in every local community. There are over 650 area agencies on aging in the United States and 6 in Minnesota. Minnesota area agencies on aging are designated by the Board on Aging (Off Site) to provide three critical functions: OAA funding administration, community planning and service development, and information and assistance.
The Metropolitan Area Agency on Aging is a catalyst in building communities where elders live with dignity, mutual respect and shared responsibilities across generations and cultures.
In partnerships with public and private organizations, MAAA helps elders age successfully. It does this by building community capacity, advocating for aging issues, maximizing service effectiveness and linking people with information.
