PCA will host a public hearing to obtain comment on its proposed budget and programs for 2011-2012 on Thursday, May 26 at 10 a.m. at PCA, 642 N. Broad St. in Philadelphia.
Since the PA Dept. of Aging has not yet provided allocation information for the next year, the proposed budget was developed based on the assumption of flat funding. Older adults, community advocates and aging network professionals are invited. Attendees will have an opportunity to testify on how to best utilize resources to fill gaps in the continuum of aging care. The Public Hearing will serve as an opportunity to comment on the budget, highlight an unmet need or aging issue, or suggest a program idea or service strategy.
To testify in person at the hearing or to submit written comments, contact Lauren Ring by May 24 at 215-765-9000, ext. 5075 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. more info>>
