Cal-EESI: Policy Priorities

Closing the Gap Between Elders' Income and Expenses

“What gets measured, gets done!”

The first step in helping older adults reach economic stability is to accurately understand who is not making ends meet. Our policy priorities are to integrate the Elder Index into state and local aging plans and services so that older adults who are struggling to make ends meet no longer fall through the cracks of our support systems. Our strategy is to work with policymakers, public agencies, philanthropic foundations, nonprofit service and advocacy organizations, and other stakeholders to adopt the Elder Index. Click here to see how the Elder Index is being used by stakeholders across California.

We are currently evaluating the implementation of CA AB 138 (Elder Economic Planning Act), which was signed into law in 2011 and requires state and local aging agencies to use the Elder Index to craft more effective programs and policies for California's aging population. The findings from this evaluation will inform our policy priorities for the 2013-2014 legislative session.
