County Information

The Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging, which serves Ohio’s Planning and Service Area 6 (PSA6), is operated under the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department of the City of Columbus. The agency was established in 1974 as part of the Older Americans Act and serves eight counties: Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette, Franklin, Licking, Madison, Pickaway, and Union.

There are 622 Area Agencies on Aging (often called triple-As) in the United States. Every county in the US is served by an area agency, which were established under the Older Americans Act (OAA) in 1973 to respond to the needs of Americans 60 and over. The Ohio Association of Area Agencies on Aging (o4a) is a statewide network that serves as a collective voice for Ohio’s 12 Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs).

COAAA’s focal point agencies serve designated counties and serve as local entry points through which seniors, people with disabilities, family members and caregivers, and other can access information, referral, assessment, and services provided or funded by COAAA. A list of COAAA’s focal point agencies is below; additional county-specific resources can be found on our website under Resources > Crisis/ Abuse/ Neglect.
