AUSTIN – The Texas Health and Human Services Commission today announced the recipients of the 2021 Innovators in Aging award. The award recognizes organizations and people who have made positive impacts on the lives of older adults in Texas.
According to census data projections, there are approximately 9.2 million Texans age 50 and older. This population is expected to increase to 11.1 million people by 2030. As the aging population in Texas quickly grows, so does the need for enhanced efforts to help older adults age and live well. The Innovators in Aging awards program, now in its fourth year, highlights recipients from across the state for developing and carrying out innovative ideas that meet the needs of older adults.
“It is important that we celebrate the contributions of those working to improve the lives of older Texans,” said HHSC Aging Services Coordination Director Holly Riley. “We hope these efforts will encourage others to take bold, innovative actions to support this important population.”
