Thrive Alliance area public hearing


Thrive Alliance will conduct an Area Wide Public Hearing on Thursday June 20, 2013, 11:00 a.m. in the large Conference Room, at 1531 13th Street, Suite G900, Columbus, IN 47201, in relation to its proposed Area Plan for FY-2013- 2015. Thrive Alliance invites older adults, public officials and other interested parties to participate.  The hearing will take place after the business meeting of Thrive Alliance’s Advisory Council.

At the hearing, Thrive Alliance will present information regarding the services it will provide directly and indirectly in Bartholomew, Brown, Decatur, Jackson and Jennings counties in Indiana. Interested parties will be given an opportunity to provide oral and or written testimony concerning the needs of older adults in the area, and comment on written information Thrive Alliance will provide in the form of pre-plan material.

Information that will supplement Thrive Alliance’s proposed Area Plan will be available in written format at the hearing, and prior to the hearing on or around June 14, 2013. This material will profile the conditions of older adults in the area and their need for services.  Prioritization of services and a summary of the proposed Area Plan and the process used in the plan development will be components in the document. The document will also include information about how Thrive Alliance will provide services to older adults with greatest economic, and social need, and low-income minority adults residing within the service area.  This pre-plan material will be available prior to the public hearing, and on the date of the hearing.

Should you have questions, please contact Cheryl Kenyon at 812-372-6918 or by email at  In addition, she may be contacted if you or your organization would like to provide direct oral or written testimony on or prior to the Public Hearing.  Testimony may also be provided at the date of the Public Hearing without prior notice.
