Purpose

The Indian Nations Council of Governments (INCOG) is a voluntary association of local and tribal governments in the Tulsa metropolitan area in northeast Oklahoma.  In 2010, INCOG was designated as the Area Agency on Aging (AAA) for Creek, Osage, and Tulsa counties by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services. The Area Agency on Aging was established in 1974 under the Older Americans Act of 1965 to respond to the needs of Americans 60 and over. The mission of the INCOG AAA is to improve quality of life by promoting independence, dignity, and health for senior citizens through advocacy, education, and support of community-based services. By providing a range of options that allow older adults to choose the home and community-based services and living arrangements that suit them best, INCOG AAA makes it possible for older adults to remain in their homes and communities as long as possible.
