When Older Americans Month was established in 1963, only 17 million living Americans had reached their 65th birthday. An Act was passed where the purpose was to enable Older Americans to remain in their homes longer. It created many programs that are still in use today to assist our older Americans including Meals on Wheels and SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program).
President Gerald Ford proclaimed Older Americans Month in 1976.
