Grants allow Area on the Aging to continue in-home services through year’s end

NORWICH – The Chenango County Area on the Aging is able to operate its Expanded In-Home Services for the Elderly Program (EISEP) through the end of the year, thanks largely to state and federal grant funds recently awarded to the agency.



On Monday, the county Board of Supervisors authorized an appropriation of grant funds totaling more than $32,400 to continue services through EISEP. Funds come to the county through five different channels, including $16,888 in state aid for community services for the elderly; $2,714 in state aid for its nutritional assistance program; $832 in state aid for EISEP; $10,420 in federal aid for the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act; and $1,578 in federal aid for the agency’s aging nutrition program.
