Elder Affairs Advisory Board

The Elder Affairs Advisory Board (EAAB) will serve in an advisory capacity to the Mayor and the Board of County Commissioners, to distinguish the needs of the elderly community, which makes up 16 percent of the County's population. The Board is made up of 15 members, each selected by the Mayor, a County Commissioner, and the Miami-Dade Chapter of the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP).

Board Members

The members shall be permanent residents and electors of the County in accordance with section 2-11.38, as may be amended, shall have knowledge of and interest in the County's elderly population and shall be at least 62 years of age. Board members shall serve four-year terms, and no member may serve more than eight consecutive years in accordance with section 2-11.38.2, as may be amended.


The Miami-Dade County Elder Affairs Advisory Board was established by Ordinance No. 18-49 in May 2018. The ordinance sponsored by Commissioner Rebeca Sosa and approved unanimously by the Board of County Commissioners will expand the support for seniors in Miami-Dade County, while allowing them to play a more active role in the local government by crafting strategies to better meet their needs.


The board shall advise the Mayor and Board of County Commissioners on issues related to the County's programming, public services, and facilities for elderly persons, including but not limited to, transportation/mobility services, health care services, parks programming, including silver services programming, and affordable housing.
