Aging and Disability Services (ADS)—the Area Agency on Aging for Seattle & King County—is planning for an upcoming funding process for our network of information, referral, assistance and other supports for older adults, adults with disabilities, and caregivers in Seattle and King County. This network includes Community Living Connections and Family Caregiver Support Programs.

We are considering a new approach for putting these investments in the community—one that encourages collaboration and builds on the strengths of the diverse community of service providers in King County.

We invite you to join us for one of two community conversations on “collaborative funding.” These conversations are an opportunity for providers to learn more about the funding process. It’s also our opportunity to hear from you about how we can work together to build a strong and successful provider network.
