Older Vermonters Act

Act 156, the Older Vermonters Act, passed the Vermont legislature in September 2020 and was signed by Governor Phil Scott in October 2020. This Act creates a set of principles for a comprehensive and coordinated system of services, supports and protections for older Vermonters, expands the scope of the State Plan on Aging, requires an annual legislative report on Adult Protective Services, calls on Vermont to create an Action Plan for Aging Well to build an age-friendly state, and creates a self-neglect working group. This act was informed by the recommendations provided by the Older Vermonters Act Working Group.
