The Minnesota River Area Agency on Aging (MNRAAA) provides advocacy, information, resources and assistance so that older adults can maintain the lifestyle of their choice.
MNRAAA’s Legislative Priorities for 2023:
Volunteer Drivers – Federal
- MNRAAA advocates for transportation options that enable older adults to access services and reduce social isolation through continued support for volunteer drivers.
- MNRAAA is an active member of the Minnesota Volunteer Driver Coalition.
- MNRAAA advocates for supporting the Senior Nutrition program in Minnesota. The need for Senior Nutrition and food securities among the older adult population has grown exponentially since the COVID-19 Pandemic. Lack of nutrition impacts health, erodes quality of life and contributes to rising healthcare costs.
- Minnesota is an active member of the Minnesota Association of Area Agencies on Aging.
The Minnesota River Area Agency on Aging Data Profile includes a variety of information about the older adult population in the twenty seven-county area of the Southwest Planning and Service Area (SW PSA).
