Minnesota Board on Aging
The Minnesota Board on Aging is a gateway to services for Minnesota seniors and their families. The MBA listens to senior concerns, researches for solutions, and proposes policy to address senior needs. In addition, the MBA administers funds from the Older Americans Act that provide a spectrum of services to seniors, including Senior LinkAge Line®, health insurance counseling and more. First established in 1956, the MBA is one of the pioneers in the field of aging policy, information and assistance. It works closely with its Area Agencies on Aging, which are located throughout the state, to provide services that seniors need. The Board’s 25 members are appointed by the governor.

It is built upon a strong partnership between the Department and local public health agencies and tribal governments. Among the department’s strategic priorities for health care reform are improved patient/consumer experience, improved population health and decreased per capita costs.
