New York State’s older adult population is growing. By 2030, 1 out of 4 New York residents will be 60 years old or older.

In 2022, the Governor established New York’s Master Plan for Aging (MPA), and charged the New York State Department of Health and the NYS Office for the Aging to develop a comprehensive roadmap to meet the needs of all New Yorkers as they age.

On Tuesday, June 18th from 10am – 11:30am, we will hold the first 2024 Roundtable session, which will provide an overview of the MPA, and the MPA planning process, as well as offer the perspectives of leading MPA stakeholders on some of the challenges and opportunities. Finally, experts from California will share what they’ve learned from other states and their own planning efforts.
