340:105-10-30. Designation of Area Agencies on Aging
(a) Policy. An entity applying for designation as an Area Agency on Aging (AAA) must be an agency whose single purpose is to administer programs for older persons or a separate organizational unit within a multipurpose agency which functions only for purposes of serving as the AAA. Once designated, the AAA is responsible for providing adequate and qualified staff to perform all functions of the AAA. A designated AAA continues to function in that capacity until the AAA informs the State Agency that it no longer wishes to carry out the responsibilities of an AAA, or until the State Agency withdraws the designation of the AAA as provided for in OAC 340:105-10-21.
(b) Authority. The authority for this Section is Title 45 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 1321.55.
(c) Procedures. To apply for designation as an AAA, an entity described in (a) of this Section must respond in the State Agency prescribed Area Plan format as provided in OAC 340:105-10-33 to the Local Funding Contract Announcement published annually in the Oklahoma Register. Application packets and technical assistance may be obtained from Aging Services Division, Department of Human Services at P. O. Box 25352, Oklahoma City, OK 73125, (405) 521-2281.
