Download our Master Plan for Aging Fact Sheet to learn about the historic and bold investments that California has made in our quest to build an Equitable California for ALL Ages and Abilities. Since its launch in January 2021, the Newsom Administration and the Legislature have committed billions of dollars in unprecedented investments to advance equity and priorities outlined in the state’s Master Plan for Aging (MPA) for 2030. More than 50 MPA initiatives have been adopted to strengthen existing programs while simultaneously launching new services for targeted populations. Today, older Californians, people with disabilities, and caregivers have expanded access to health care, increased housing opportunities, greater home and community-based care options, and a host of new supports to enhance community living.
With its Five Bold Goals, Data Dashboard for Aging, and Local Playbook, the Master Plan has inspired unprecedented levels of coordinated action across California’s growing network of aging and disability providers, policy makers, advocates, and experts. On January 21st, 2022, the MPA released its First Annual Progress Report with updates on the 132 2021-2022 strategies, local implementation highlights, and legislative wins.
