Municipal Agent for the Aging

The Municipal Agent on Aging (MAA) helps seniors and their families deal with concerns of the elderly, helps them develop an action plan, and assists them with solutions and referrals. The MAA is a state-mandated position, originally established in 1972, and each of the 169 towns in Connecticut has a Municipal Agent. The Municipal Agent reports to the First Selectman and the Commission on Aging. The MAA is familiar with programs such as adult day care, elder abuse prevention, meals on wheels, housing, home health care, mental health, fuel assistance, legal referrals, elderly state and town tax relief, Medicare enrollment, Medicare insurances, Social Security benefits, and Veterans programs.

Our outreach worker is available to visit homebound seniors, or any senior who welcomes a friendly visit. 

The Municipal Agent office is located in the Easton Senior Center. Please call 203-268-1137 to make an appointment or drop in during business hours.

The Municipal Agent is an appointed position for a term of 4 years.
