Coast to Coast and Everywhere In Between: LGBTQ+ Inclusive State Planning
LGBTQ+ older adults have often been invisible to the aging network. The SAGE National Resource Center on LGBTQ+ Aging has long worked with State Units on Aging and Disability to support the inclusion of older LGBTQ+ people in data collection, outreach and services. These efforts were strengthened by the inclusion of LGBTQ+ communities in the 2020 reauthorization of the Older Americans Act (OAA) and subsequent State Plan guidance from the Administration for Community Living. This webinar provides lessons learned from coast to coast, including state unit leaders from Illinois and Maine and ACL Regional Administrators from the West and Southeast, featuring speakers from ACL, ADvancing States, the Illinois Department on Aging and the Maine Department of Health and Human Services.
