The Administration on Aging, more commonly known as AoA, is a federal government agency operating within the United States Department of Health and Human Services that's primarily responsible for conducting statistical activities in support of the research, analysis, and evaluation of programs to meet the needs of an aging population.

The grants and initiatives of the AoA are all designed to assist in the achievement of its general agency mission which is to "develop a comprehensive, coordinated and cost-effective system of home and community-based services that helps elderly individuals maintain their health and independence in their homes and communities."
