Key Priorities

                            About Us   Public/Private Initiatives  You Can Help  Fund Resources 

Responding to the dramatic increase in the City’s aging population, as well as the current economic challenges that that have diminished most seniors’ retirement savings, the Fund is embarking on several new and expanded programs that will enrich the lives of seniors.  The Aging in New York Fund’s planned initiatives will help the City’s elderly to age in place and live more connected, vibrant and healthier lives. 

The Fund’s major impact projects address one or more of the following vital goals:

·         Maintaining New York City’s status as the best place to grow old;

·         Fulfilling a critical gap in the aging service continuum that has been cut to due to City budget deficits;

·         Providing fiscal and administrative support to DFTA and local non-profits in their efforts to offer essential services; and

·         Being on the cutting edge of innovative senior programming.
