California State Plan on Aging

As the State Unit on Aging, CDA must submit a State Plan to the federal Administration for Community Living (ACL) at least every four years in order for the State to receive federal Older American’s Act (OAA) funding. The State Plan is developed with input from the public, AAAs, California Commission on Aging, State Legislature, and State, Federal and local departments and agencies, and it outlines specific goals, objectives, and strategies that CDA believes can be achieved with existing resources. While CDA is only required to address programs and services specified in and funded under the OAA in this State Plan, for many years the Department has also included goals and objectives for the Multipurpose Senior Services Program (MSSP) and the Community-Based Adult Services (CBAS) Program, even though they are funded through Medi-Cal. The current State Plan continues to incorporate all the programs CDA oversees and was developed with a focus on promoting the independence and well-being of older adults, persons with disabilities, and their families.

California Aging Population Demographic Projections for Intrastate Funding Formula (IFF)

The CDA annual California Aging Population Demographic Projections report provides older adult population data by County and Planning Service Area (PSA) level. The statistics include age, minority and non-English demographics, geographic isolation (rural), individuals living alone, and Medi-Cal and Supplemental Security Income (SSI)/State Supplementary Payment (SSP) participants. These factors are used to develop planning estimates for the local assistance allocation of federal and State funds to the Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) as part of the Intrastate Funding Formula (IFF).

CDA Program Narratives and Fact Sheets

Division of Home and Community Living Statistical Fact Sheets provide service performance data, demographic statistics, State operations budget allocations and local services expenditures, and local assistance expenditures for programs and services administered by CDA. The Program Narratives provide information on the purpose of the program, eligibility requirements, and a brief history of the program. This information is provided to the California State Legislature pursuant to the California Welfare and Institutions Code, Section 9102.

Long-Term Care Ombudsman Annual Report

This Annual Report describes the performance and goals achieved by the California Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program. The report provides a snapshot of the work of approximately 900 certified Long-Term Care Ombudsman representatives. Ombudsman representatives identify, investigate and resolve complaints of residents of long-term care facilities. 35 local Ombudsman entities enter information about their cases and activities into a statewide database. The Office of the State Long-Term Care Ombudsman then compiles the data into an annual State report using the National Ombudsman Reporting System (NORS). NORS analyzes State results using standards established by the U.S. Administration on Aging.

National Aging Program Information Systems (NAPIS) State Program Report (SPR) for California

The NAPIS SPR is a statistical compilation of performance data (client demographics, units of service, etc.) and expenditures by individual programs.
