On June 10, 2019, governor Gavin Newsom issued an Executive Order directing the development of a Master Plan for Aging. The Executive Order directs the Secretary of the Health and Human Services (HHS) Agency to convene a cabinet-level Workgroup for Aging to advise the Secretary in developing and issuing the Master Plan. It also directs HHS to convene a Master Plan for Aging Stakeholder Advisory Committee, which will include a Research Subcommittee and a Long-Term Care Subcommittee.
As part of our commitment to the Master Plan for Aging, the California Collaborative has established a working group dedicated to serving as a stakeholder body to guide the plan’s development. The workgroup is broadly representative of the Collaborative’s membership and offers decades of experience as aging, disability, and long-term care service providers, advocates, state agency staff, legislative staff, and community organizers.
