- Older Americans Act (OAA), Federal
- Senior Citizens Service Act (SCSA), Washington State
- City of Seattle General Fund, local
Non-discretionary funds are mandated for specific services and populations. The major non-discretionary fund sources are:
- Medicaid Title XIX, Federal
- Nutrition Services Incentive Program/USDA, Federal
- Respite, Washington State
In addition to the above fund sources, ADS seeks grants and other funding opportunities for innovative programs.
The Advisory Council’s Planning and Allocation (P&A) committee recommends strategies to increase or decrease Discretionary funding to service areas. The committee consists of seven members, each representing one of the ADS sponsoring organizations. The Sponsors consider the P&A recommendations when making the final decision on service areas and funding levels.
