10A NCAC 05C .0203 DESIGNATION OF PLANNING AND SERVICE AREAS
(a) Federal regulations mandate that the Division of Aging shall divide the entire State into distinct planning and service areas (PSAs) in accordance with prescribed regulations. In North Carolina, the Governor has designated, through Executive Order, 18 multi‑county planning regions to coordinate and plan activities throughout North Carolina. The Division of Aging is utilizing areas with coterminous boundaries for North Carolina's aging planning and service areas. Thus, planning and service areas coincide with other multi‑county planning efforts.
(b) Other units of general purpose local governments, region metropolitan area, Indian reservations, may apply to be designated as a planning and service area. Requests for PSA designation shall be received at least twelve months prior to the proposed effective date the organization wishes to begin serving as an area agency on aging.
