Your Input is Needed for PA Master Plan for Older Adults

By Rob Kauffman

The Department of Aging is currently gathering input on Pennsylvania’s Master Plan for Older Adults, a 10-year, state-led and stakeholder-driven strategic plan designed to help transform the infrastructure and coordination of services for older Pennsylvanians.

The Department of Aging has created a webpage dedicated to the Master Plan for Older Adults, which provides information on why a master plan is needed, the core tenets, how the department will gather input for the plan, resources and more. 

Individuals who would like to submit input on the plan can either email, provide feedback through an online form or send mail to:

Pennsylvania Department of Aging

c/o Master Plan
555 Walnut St., 5th Floor
Harrisburg, PA 17101

Additionally, all Pennsylvanians will have an opportunity to participate in the development process. The Area Agencies on Aging and the Centers for Independent Living will host listening sessions where the public can learn about the plan and submit input. The stakeholder engagement process will involve outreach and requests for feedback from anyone or any group with a vested interest.

Who We Are

The Franklin County Free Press, established by Vicky Taylor in 2019, emerged as a beacon of local journalism for the residents of Franklin County. Under Vicky's leadership, it quickly became an essential source of news, particularly at a time when major newspaper publications were increasingly overlooking local coverage.

On January 1, 2022, the torch was passed to Nathan Neil and his firm, Neil Publishing, LLC. Neil, a local entrepreneur with multiple thriving businesses in Chambersburg, shares Vicky's fervent commitment to both the community and the world of local journalism.

Rooted in the heart of Franklin County and powered by its residents, the Franklin County Free Press continues to bridge the gap, ensuring that the local stories, events, and issues that matter most to the community remain in the spotlight.
