Targeting OAA Legal Services to Those in Greatest Need Without Means Testing

Event Description: 

The National Center on Law and Elder Rights (NCLER) is hosting a webinar to discuss how Congress has directed that Older Americans Act (OAA) resources be targeted to those with the greatest social or economic need. However, Congress was clear that means testing is prohibited, raising a dilemma of how to target effectively without means testing. This webinar will discuss OAA targeting requirements and steps that states, Legal Assistance Developers (LADs), Area Agencies on Aging, legal providers and others can take jointly to achieve targeting.
