State Committee on AgingIn 2019, the NH Governor and Legislature approved a Commission on Aging (COA), which transformed the existing State Committee on Aging (SCOA). The COA builds on the 30-year history of SCOA in advocating for solutions for older adults, while expanding its outreach beyond DHHS. The Commission includes older adult representation from NH’s ten counties, representation from DHHS and other State agencies, and reports directly to the Governor’s Office, thus providing a stronger voice for older people in NH.
