FY2023 Public Information Document

Western Illinois Area Agency on Aging (WIAAA) will hold two public hearings to review and discuss the Public Information Document for FY2023.  The purpose of the Public Hearings is to provide information about Western Illinois Area Agency on Aging’s proposed plans for programs and services for older adults and family caregivers. The two Public Hearings will be held virtually this year through Zoom. We invite all community members of our ten-county service area (Bureau, Henderson, Henry, Knox, McDonough, Mercer, LaSalle, Putnam, Rock Island and Warren counties), our local provider agencies, elected officials, and the general public to attend.  The public’s thoughts and suggestions are a vital part of our planning process.
