​Kitsap County Area Agency on Aging Advisory Council

ADVISORY COUNCIL FUNCTION/PURPOSE

Pursuant to the Older Americans Act, Public Law 89-73, as amended, the Area Agency on Aging is required to create an advisory council, with a majority of members age 60 or over.

The council is required to advise the agency in the development and implementation of the Area Plan for aging services funded through Kitsap County; conduct public hearings; represent the interests of older persons; and review and comment on all community policies, programs and actions which affect older persons.

The council is made up of 11 unpaid volunteers, appointed by the Board of County Commissioners, for three-year terms. Representation is sought from all areas of the county, diverse ethnic groups and low-income seniors. 

Applications are currently open for a District 3 (Central Kitsap) vacancy on the council. Click here to complete the application.
