Announcement of Public Hearing

October 13, 2020

To comply with federal requirements, the Area Agency on Aging will conduct a Public Hearing via Zoom at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 27, 2020.

The Agency will invite comments on two Direct Service Waiver requests that are part of the Strategic Plan Update submitted to the Ohio Department of Aging (ODA).

We are requesting ODA approval on the following:

  • Health Education Services:  to allocate $28,115 in Title III-D funds and $73,500 in state Senior Community Services funds to directly provide the Healthy U program.
  • Nutrition Education: to allocate $3,320 in Title III-C funds to provide the nutrition education service (where the Community Services Manager, our staff dietician, assists our contracted meal providers with the development of nutrition education materials).

The rationale for direct provision of these services is that the Agency can provide both more efficiently and effectively for the nine-county area than a contracted provider.

If you would like to attend the Public Hearing via Zoom, please contact Jeanne Mbagwu at to request the link. You may also send comments in writing to Jeanne. Comments must be received no later than October 26, 2020.
