The OAA also authorized grants to States for community planning and services plans, funding for research, and training and demonstration projects in the area of aging.

In 1972 Amendments added the national nutrition program for the elderly. The OAA was amended on November 13, 2000 to include the National Family Caregiver Support Program, that was meant to help thousands of family members who are fighting to take care of their older loved ones who are sick or who have handicaps. The program provides grant funding for combined services between state and local agencies for such things as support groups, counseling, respite and other community based services. These services are focused on the treatment of the aging and weak members of society. The plan additionally provides services geared towards the family units and other relatives that are older now in the periods of care taking for related children of age and under eighteen years.
