Board of Commissioners

The Idaho Commission on Aging (ICOA) is a state government agency under the oversight of the Executive Office of the Governor. The ICOA was originally created in 1968 as the Idaho Office on Aging with a 17-member advisory council to administer federally funded programs under the Older Americans Act (OAA) of 1965, as amended, and state-funded services for older Idahoans. In 1995, legislation was adopted to change the name to the Idaho Commission on Aging and replace the council with a 7-member commission appointed by the Governor to a 4 year term, not to exceed 2 terms.
