St. Louis County developed its action plan in collaboration with the Saint Louis County planning department. The action plan commits to respecting the urban and unincorporated areas of the county, making sure services are accessible to all residents, and ensuring that county departments benefit older adults. St. Louis County aims to improve the quality of life of its residents by reflecting the importance of individuals' health and wellbeing, and improving social interactions and civic participation.
Action Plan Highlights
HealthImprove health outcomes for vulnerable and marginalized older adult communities by increasing access to primary care to improve respiratory and cardiovascular health outcomes.

Expand alternative housing options like housing and shared housing.
