Wilson Park Senior Center, 2508 Jackson Street, Philadelphia, PA

Governor Wolf will be joined by Department of Aging Secretary Teresa Osborne to announce the statewide 2016-2017 Senior Community Center Grants and highlight initiatives in his 2017-2018 budget proposal that will help Pennsylvania seniors.

In his 2017-2018 budget, Governor Wolf proposes the consolidation of agencies to create the Department of Health and Human Services. The Department of Health and Human Services will build on the Wolf Administration’s commitment to streamlining government programs while preventing instability of healthcare and protecting Pennsylvania’s most vulnerable citizens from abuse, neglect, and exploitation.

The Senior Community Center Grants are designed to help the more than 500 senior community centers across the Commonwealth increase participation and provide innovative programs for older Pennsylvanians.
