DEPARTMENT OF AGING

ORIGIN


[photo, 301 West Preston St., Baltimore, Maryland] In 1959, the Department originated as the State Coordinating Commission on the Problems of the Aging (Chapter 1, Acts of 1959). It was renamed Commission on the Aging in 1971 (Chapter 595, Acts of 1971). The Governor's Coordinating Office on Problems of the Aging was established by the Governor in 1974. In 1975, the Commission on the Aging and the Governor's Coordinating Office on Problems of the Aging merged to form the Office on Aging, a cabinet-level agency (Chapter 261, Acts of 1975). In July 1998, the Office was restructured as the Department of Aging, a principal executive department (Chapter 573, Acts of 1998).
