About the Maryland Department of Aging

The Department of Aging protects the rights and quality of life of older persons in Maryland. To meet the needs of senior citizens, the Department administers programs throughout the State, primarily through local "area agencies" on aging. Area agencies administer State and federal funds for local senior citizen programs. These programs include advocacy services, health education, housing, information and referral, in-home services, and nutrition (Maryland Annotated Code Human Services Article, secs. 10-201 through 10-214).

The Department monitors and provides technical assistance to a network of nineteen area agencies on aging that serve all counties and Baltimore City. Grants of federal and State funds for local programs to serve the elderly are provided by the federal Older Americans Act (Title III), the federal Food and Agriculture Act (sec. 700), and State general funds. Area agencies also receive local funds, private donations, and contributions from program participants.

The Department of Aging works through five divisions: Budget and Fiscal Services; Client and Community Services; Continuing Care; Housing Services; and Program Development. The Department is aided by the Commission on Aging and the Financial Review Committee.
