BACKGROUND:
Your Board designated the County's Aging and Adult Services division (AAS) as the Area Agency on Aging for San Mateo County to carry out state-funded programs pursuant to the federal Older Americans Act of 1965.

Board approval of the Area Plan for Services for Older Adults and Adults with Disabilities allows the County to receive state funding to provide Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program (HICAP) services.

As an integral component of the County's community-based, long-term care system, HICAP connects eligible citizens to Medicare health insurance. Medicare beneficiaries, those under 65 who are about to become eligible for Medicare, and those who are disabled are eligible for HICAP services.

On June 6, 2017, your Board approved an agreement with CDA to accept Older Americans Act funds for HICAP services for the term July 1, 2017, through June 30, 2020, in the amount of $929,731.
