Funding for OAA programs is provided through the Department of Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies (Labor-HHS-Education) annual appropriations bill, and dollars are allocated to states based on a formula. Since FY 2010, federal OAA Appropriations to Texas’s nutrition programs have fallen while the need is escalating at an unprecedented pace.

Nutrutious meals to a senior for an entire year FOR LESS THAN $1,135.
THE OAA covers 43% of that cost. Programs rely on contributions from state, local, private donations and other resources to cover the rest.
