The Older Americans Act was signed into law on July 14, 1965. The original act created the Administration on Aging and authorized grants to states for community planning, services, research, and demonstration and training projects in the field of aging. Later amendments provided grants to area agencies on aging for local needs identification, planning and funding of services. The Act was reauthorized and amended in 2000, at which time the National Family Caregiver Support Program was established to support family, friends and neighbors caring for older person as well as for grandparents and other older relatives caring for children.
