Welcome to the Mayor's Council on African American Elders Web site

The Mayor's Council on African American Elders (MCAAE) was established in 1995 by Mayor Norman B. Rice to oversee the development of a comprehensive continuum of services to serve the needs of African American elders.

The Mayor's Council on African American Elders is a Council of up to 12 members that advises City officials on policies, programs and services of benefit to older African Americans. It is a goal of the MCAAE to recruit people from diverse backgrounds. The current composition includes individuals with expertise in aging, health care, mental health, social work and skilled care administration. Members are required to live within King County.

The MCAAE is interested in learning your opinions about the needs of African American Elders in the Seattle and King County areas.
