Every four years, Aging and Disability Services and other Area Agencies on Aging around the country develop an Area Plan, which charts the course we will follow as we seek to create an age-friendly community. The Area Plan describes the function of Aging and Disability Services as the local Area Agency on Aging, presents relevant demographic trends, and outlines the major goals and objectives to be achieved over the course of four years.

Each Area Agency on Aging also prepares a biennial update. Plans and updates for Seattle-King County are submitted to the State Unit on Aging, part of the DSHS Aging and Long-Term Support Administration, which in turn files a State Plan on Aging with the federal Administration on Aging, all part of the Aging Network authorized by the Older Americans Act of 1965.

The Area Plan 2024–2027 Seattle and King County Washington was approved by the Washington State Unit on Aging on April 19, 2024.
