Demographics and Profiles of Delaware’s Elderly
Institute for Public Administration
Delaware’s growing elderly population presents significant issues for state and local governments, community organizations, and the general public. In response to the growing diversity and complexity of the state’s older citizenry, it is essential for key players of these groups to understand how current and projected population trends will directly impact future appropriation levels calculated from Delaware’s Grant-in-Aid Senior Center Funding Formula. Also important to consider is how demographic shifts among the state’s jurisdictions will place new burdens on individual communities and local organizations serving residents.
