Community Action Plan on Aging

By 2030, one of every three Historic Triangle Area residents will be age 60 or over (US Census, 2005). In response to this startling fact, SSC facilitated the development of the Community Action Plan on Aging, a ten year plan that outlines the activities necessary to make the Greater Williamsburg Area a more livable community for seniors.

CAPOA - Community Action Plan on Aging

The plan was created through research, interviews and community forums led by the Center for Excellence in Aging and Lifelong Health and identifies four issues for action:

  • Awareness of and Access to Resources
  • Vulnerable Seniors
  • Housing and Neighborhood Support
  • Seniors as a Resource

Goals, strategies and evaluation measures have been developed for each issue. Committees, comprised of volunteers assisted by a small staff, are implementing the Plan. The specific accomplishments achieved since implementation are available for viewing or download in PDF format in the list below.
