About the CoA
The Connecticut Commission on Aging is a non-partisan state agency of the CT General Assembly.
We are devoted to preparing our state for the burgeoning aging populations while promoting policies that enhance the lives of the present and future generations of older adults.
The CoA is comprised of a resourceful team of 21 voting (unpaid) members, 4 part-time professional staff, and volunteers.
Since its creation by the CT General Assembly in 1993, the CoA has served as an effective leader in statewide efforts to promote choice, independence and dignity for Connecticut's older adults.
The CoA fills a unique role within state government by building bridges, opening dialogue and seeking solutions between influential groups including the legislative and executive branches of state government, local government, the business community, state and local organizations that serve critical needs of older citizens and statewide public/private sector coalitions such as the Connecticut Elder Action Network, Connecticut Long-Term Care Advisory Council and the Money Follows the Person Steering Committee.
