Governor's Council on an Age-Friendly Minnesota

Active dates:2019 -
Function:

The council will coordinate work across sectors, including state government, non-profits, communities, businesses, and others to ensure Minnesota is an age-friendly state. The council will, among other things, assess and examine relevant programs, policies, practices, and services to make budget and policy recommendations for the 2021 legislative session to establish, in law, an Age-Friendly Board and age-friendly policies with appropriate financial support, to ensure Minnesota continues to lead on age-friendly initiatives.

The Council will submit a preliminary action plan and legislative recommendations to the Governor by August 15, 2020. The Council will submit a report to the Governor with its final action plan and recommendations for implementation of any enacted legislation related to age-friendly policies by December 31, 2021.
