Who are we?
The Huntingdon-Bedford-Fulton Area Agency on Aging is a public agency under the jurisdiction of the counties of Huntingdon, Bedford, and Fulton. The Agency is directly governed by the nine Commissioners representing these three counties and is referred to as the "Joint Board of Commissioners".
The Agency operates in accordance with a formal Joinder Agreement entered into by the County Commissioners and under the auspices of the Older Americans Act, provision of program directives issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, regulations of the Department of transportation, other funding sources, and local policies which have been designed to address specific operational concerns. The Agency maintains offices in each of the counties with the location in Bedford continuing to function as the main administrative office.
What do we do?
Designed for advocacy, the Huntingdon-Bedford-Fulton Area Agency on Aging provides a combination of direct and subcontracted service to older individuals and serves as the focal point of providing for long term programs for the frail and chronically ill. This combination of services matches well with other local providers of human services in the three county area.
