SAPGA meeting

The following research, reports, legislation and other materials have been collected by the planning group as it examines the impact of the shifting aging demographic on several facets of our society including the economy, workforce, transportation and infrastructure, businesses, and market-based products and services.  Other areas impacted by a growing aging population include state and local revenue, budgets and fiscal policies, Medicaid and other safety-net programs, family caregiving, and public and private options for long-term care, services and support.  The documents and information provided below are offered to the public and researchers as the planning group and others work to develop a comprehensive aging strategy for the state of Colorado.
