It has been a long journey, but after three years and two elections, we are finally starting to see the light of progress. However, the journey has been long, but it not quite finished. 

The demolition of the interior of the building is complete, and phase two is coming to pass. We are in our second year of funding from the Senior Sales Tax that was voted on in 2018. We do want to thank the Senior Tax Committee and the Kennett City Council for their support and generosity in allowing the funding to continue in order for the center to be completed this year. 

In July 2018, the Department of Economic Development awarded Aging Matters the Neighborhood Assistance Program Tax Credit Grant for the remodeling of the Kennett OAKS Senior center. The grant will provide additional funding with a 70 percent on 350,000 state tax credits. We still have tax credits left. Anyone wanting to help complete the center for seniors in Kennett, email us at 

AGING MATTERS was awarded the NAP Tax Credit grant in 2018. Once all $350,000 credits are sold, the funding for the remodel will be $500,000.
