The AAA is funded through Federal and State government grants in addition to local share funds that are contributed by the County of Venango.  Cost sharing is required for some services.  This means that depending on income, some consumer co-payments are required for some services.  Very low-income consumers will pay nothing for most services for which they are eligible.  (Income and asset documentation is required)  The primary goal of the AAA is to foster and maintain independent living for older Venango County residents. Once a person is assessed and eligible, the AAA may directly provide or purchase some services from other providers.  The agency is also responsible for planning, coordination of services, and resource management of Older Americans Act, PA Lottery Funds, and other funds available to Venango County.    Community participation and input for the development of the service delivery system is sought from various groups that include the Area Agency on Aging Advisory Council, Senior Center Site Councils, and annual public hearings.

Regular meetings of the Aging Advisory Council for 2011 are:
Community Conference Room, 1 Dale Avenue, Franklin PA, 10:00AM to 11:30AM (3rd Friday)
