NC Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) offer many evidence-based programs with the federal funding support of the Older Americans Act; therefore, AAAs cannot charge for the classes supported by these funds. There is no limit to the number of classes that a participant can take through the AAA. Depending on the funding source, classes listed on our website are offered at low or no cost.
