Napa County’s older adults have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

To better understand the impact, the Napa County Board of Supervisors voted to support a team of community-based organizations in assessing the current needs of older adults (ages 60 and above).

This 22-month project will operate September 1, 2022 through July 31, 2024 and provide the following:

  1. An assessment of the current needs of Napa County’s older adults - COMPLETED
  2. A strategic action plan that will identify how we can build resilience among older adults as they recover from the pandemic
  3. A fund development plan to close the gaps between older adults’ needs and what’s currently available in Napa County
