ElderCare Development Partnership (EDP)
The ElderCare Development Partnership (EDP) is a multi-year strategy adopted by Minnesota in 1990 to prepare the state’s long term care system to deal with the needs of a growing older population. Arrowhead Area Agency on Aging works with service providers, local governments and other partners to explore and develop innovative programs, pilot system changes, or utilize technology or informal resources to meet the growing and changing needs of the long term care system. EDP staff provides technical assistance and critiques of proposals, seeking these special state funds.
