Frequently Asked Questions
What is the K/T AAA?
K/T AAA stands for Kings-Tulare Area Agency on Aging. The Agency was created in 1965 by the federal Older Americans Act to be the lead advocate, program planner, and resource facilitator on aging issues on behalf of all older persons in these two counties. Supported by funding from Kings and Tulare Counties, state, and federal sources, K/T AAA provides many senior programs, such as home and congregate meals, case management, Medicare counseling, information and assistance, health promotion, elder abuse prevention, ombudsman assistance, and so forth. We coordinate a range of activities to ensure comprehensive, community-based services for older Americans.
