Missouri Needs Your Voice - Master Plan on Aging!

The State of Missouri has partnered with Polco, a leader in the field of civic engagement and surveying, to conduct the State of Missouri 2024 Needs Assessment Survey. If you are an older adult (age 50+), an adult with a disability, or an unpaid caregiver (adult 18+ providing unpaid care to another adult), please take a few moments to participate! Randomly selected households will receive mailed survey invitations over the next few weeks. If you receive an invitation and meet any of the listed criteria, please follow the instructions to share your input. All Missouri residents who are not selected for this initial survey effort but meet the above criteria are encouraged to participate when the state-wide survey opens on July 8. Watch social media for additional announcements or use the link below to “Follow” the Missouri Association of Area Agencies on Aging, create a Polco account, and receive an email notification when the survey is live: Results from this survey effort will help inform Missouri’s Master Plan on Aging and the development of related policies, initiatives, and community programs throughout the state.
