About Us

The Idaho Commission on Aging (ICOA) was created in 1968 and receives funding from both the Federal and State governments. Services are prioritized to help those most at-risk, based on various factors.

The ICOA assists older adults and people with disabilities to remain independent, avoid institutionalization and age in place in their own homes and communities of choice.

Mission: To lead system creation and network coordination to support Idahoans as they age.

Vision: For Idahoans to have an informative, visible, reliable and easily accessible support system as they age.
