The Hawai'i County Office of Aging (HCOA) was established in 1966 and serves to represent the County of Hawai'i in the planning, coordination, advocacy, and administration of programs for older persons in the county. The Office is a designated Area Agency on Aging, enabling the county to receive federal funds through the Older Americans Act of 1965.

There are over 650 Area Agencies on Aging in the country that represent the interests of older persons at the community level. The State Executive Office on Aging is the designated State Unit on Aging and is the lead agency in the aging network at the state level. The Administration on Aging heads the aging network at the federal level. The Hawai'i County Office of Aging works through the County, State Executive Office on Aging, and the Federal Administration on Aging for its major funding support. 


Our Mission

To establish a comprehensive and coordinated system of services in Hawai'i County that enable older people to live independently and with dignity.


Committee on Aging

A Committee on Aging, appointed by the Mayor, assists the Office of Aging in carrying out its planning responsibilities. The majority of its members are over the age of 60 and represent every major district of Hawai'i County. (To be announced)
