State Programs for Older Adults

OLR Report 2015-R-0146 describes select programs and services offered by the state to assist older adults.

Age and proportionate use of the programs by older adults were the criteria used to select the programs for the report.  There are several programs, including a matching program that offers senior assistance in locating and using other service agencies.

The state's principal programs for older adults provide cash assistance, energy assistance, health care, housing, legal assistance, long-term care, nutrition, property tax relief, and transportation.
