|Interim Status Report: Impact of Virginia's Aging Population on State Agency Services|
|Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission|
|HJR 103 (Regular Session, 2004)|
|House Joint Resolution 103 from the 2004 Session directed the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission (JLARC) to study the impact of Virginia's aging population on the demand for and cost of state agency services, policies, and program management. The number of older Virginians, those persons age 60 and above, has been increasing as a proportion of the State’s overall population. HJR 103 noted that the number of older Virginians is projected to increase at even faster rates by 2030, and that the older population may require an even greater amount of State agency services.|
This document is an interim status update for the JLARC review of the impact of the older population on State agencies. This report provides background information on the types of services presently provided to older Virginians by State agencies. The report also provides a preliminary assessment of those State agency services for which the elderly demand for services at the present time appears to exceed the current capacity of the agencies to provide those services.
The final report for this review is expected during the summer or fall of 2005. This interim report was approved for printing and distribution to the Governor and the General Assembly at the September 2004 JLARC meeting.
