This final report notes that the Administration on Aging (AoA) and the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) could take advantage of many benefits offered by intergenerational activities by encouraging the co-location of programs, such as Head Start and senior centers, on a voluntary basis. We are recommending that AoA and ACF examine whether the demonstrated successes in co-locating programs and facilities in the private and public sector can be more broadly applied on a voluntary basis. The AoA and ACF generally agreed with our report and its conclusions and recommendations.
