Older Americans Act Nutrition Program
A network of more than 5,000 community-based senior nutrition programs serve millions of seniors nationwide each year. These programs are partially funded through the Older Americans Act (OAA) Title III Nutrition Program, administered through the Administration for Community Living (ACL), and targets those who are the most economically and socially disadvantaged. In addition to nutritious meals, both Congregate and Home-Delivered meal programs provide nutrition education, nutrition counseling, and other nutrition services, as appropriate, based on the needs of nutrition program participants.

Congregate Meal Program
This program provides seniors with nutritious meals and socialization in a group setting.

Home-Delivered Meal Program
This program provides nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks to home-bound seniors.

Nutrition Services Incentive Program (NSIP)
NSIP provides incentives to states that effectively deliver nutritious meals to seniors. This incentive can be used to purchase food, or to pay for commodities through the U.S. Department of Agriculture for congregate and home-delivered meal programs.
