Aging Directors Discuss Strategies for Funding Community Services at Quarterly Meeting

M4A meeting
Department Directors listen to a presentation by MAC, inc. on partnering with local hospitals to fund services.

M4A, the Maryland Association of Area Agencies on Aging, met in Annapolis this week to discuss funding issues facing county aging and community service agencies seeking to help the aging population.

Department Directors of Aging and Community Services Agencies from across the State gathered to share updates in federal and state funding sources, and changes in the funding models used for community services, such as a transition to fee-for-service.

The group heard a presentation from MAC, Inc. (Maintaining Active Citizens) about partnering with local hospitals as a way to share resources for residents through the Living Well Center of Excellence and CDSME.

The Directors also discussed their educational session at MACo’s upcoming Summer Conference on grant funding and other resources that allow local elected officials to provide their aging residents with the services they need.
