Leading Toward a Better Minnesota

The Minnesota Leadership Council on Aging (MNLCOA) brings together the resources and power of consumer, advocacy, social and health service organizations to advocate boldly for positive systems change to benefit older adults and their families in Minnesota. Seventeen leading nonprofit organizations form the Council. Together, these organizations represent or serve more than a 1,000,000 seniors and family caregivers.

The Council's current efforts focus on assuring that health and long-term care reform in Minnesota addresses the needs of older adults and their families. Promoting communities that better serve the needs of older adults is a key interest of the Council. The Council's website serves as a valuable portal to information about aging issues in the state.
