What We Do

Multisector Planning

A multisector plan on aging and disability creates a roadmap that helps state and local governments transform policy, infrastructure, and service coordination.

Multisector planning convenes stakeholders across multiple sectors to collaboratively address the needs of older adults and people with disabilities. Multisector plans are designs to create a coordinated system of high-quality care and support services that promote wellness, independent living, and social engagement, while also addressing issues related to housing, transportation and other social determinants of health.

Multisector plans typically span 10 years and ensure ongoing accountability and evaluation. They elevate common goals, reduce duplication and streamline efforts across interconnected planning processes.

We’re grateful to Multisector Plan for Aging, the Center for Health Care Strategies and their funders and partners for informing the content on this page.

Why a Multisector Plan?

Connecticut’s demographics are changing, and current infrastructure needs reimagining to provide the range of services needed for the increasingly diverse population of older adults and people with disabilities, along with the caregivers that support them.

Benefits of multisector planning include:

  • Finding alignment among state and local priorities
  • Breaking down silos across governmental leadership
  • Creating transparency to track progress and identify gaps
  • Enabling successful public-private partnerships


By prioritizing a Multisector Plan for Aging and Disability, Connecticut can foster communities for every ability and every age, where all of us can thrive across the lifespan.
