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 advocates for programs and services on behalf of older African Americans. One of MCAAE's goals is to recruit people from diverse professional backgrounds. The current composition includes individuals with expertise in aging, case management, education, housing, and program 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 Seattle and King County. Our contact information is available here.
