DFTA's Annual Plan Summary & Public Hearings

The New York City Department for the Aging (DFTA) is pleased to share with you the Annual Plan Summary for 2012-2013. This Plan provides a valuable opportunity for the Department to share its goals, objectives and program planning with the aging network. A series of public hearings on the Plan provides forums for consumers, community partners, advocates, and other interested parties to give the Department feedback and suggestions on issues that impact New York City’s older adults.

DFTA encourages you to attend and/or testify at one of the five Public Hearings in October; a Testimony Request Form can be found on their website. If you are unable to attend one of the hearings, please feel free to submit written comments via email or mail. The Department welcomes your input and values your expertise. All comments will be carefully considered.
