Public Hearing Set for DAIL State Plan
A public hearing on the proposed State Plan for the Department for Aging and Independent Living for federal fiscal years 2009-12 is scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, June 19, in room 113 of the Capitol Annex.
Subject to approval of the United States Administration on Aging, the four-year plan provides for the orderly and systematic expenditure of federal funds for supportive and nutrition services for elderly people under provisions of the Older Americans Act of 1965, as amended.
The hearing is a public forum open to the public or anyone interested in the delivery of services and establishment of programs for elderly people. Prioritization of services under the State Plan will be given to minorities who have low-income, older individuals living in rural areas, individuals with disabilities, caregivers and people suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease or related disorders. Comments concerning the plan are actively sought from these groups. Individuals wishing to address any aspect of the plan are invited to do so.
A copy of the plan is available for review at each Area Development District office. A copy may be obtained, also, from the state Department for Aging and Independent living, 275 E. Main St. 3W-F, Frankfort, KY 40621.
