Next MPA Town Hall Scheduled for Wed., May 22nd in NYC

(May 17, 2024) The NYS Department of Health (DOH) and Office for the Aging (SOFA) have announced a Master Plan for Aging (MPA) Town Hall, scheduled for Wed., May 22nd from 1-3 p.m. at Church of the Epiphany. This is an accessible facility located at 375 2nd Ave. in NYC.

Registration is required to attend the Town Hall in person or to access the virtual livestream. If you require a reasonable accommodation to participate in the event, please contact MPATownHall@health.ny.gov before May 21st.

Town Hall events have been hosted throughout the MPA development process on Long Island, across NYC, and in regional hubs across the state, including Albany, Utica, Binghamton, and Buffalo. A full list of MPA community engagement events, including available transcripts and recordings, is available on the State’s website.

These events are designed for New Yorkers to learn more about the status of the MPA and to provide their feedback on how the final plan would best serve the older adults in their communities. A final advisory report based on the recommendations received at the community engagement events, as well as the work of the Stakeholder Advisory Committee and State Agency Council, is expected to be submitted for the Governor’s consideration later this year. Adoption of the final MPA, based on the advisory report, is anticipated in early 2025.

Learn more about the MPA, including its governing structure and timeline, here.
