Marco D. Chayet, a founding partner of Chayet & Danzo LLC, and the Chair of NextFifty Initiative, was proud to participate in this week's announcement by Gov. John Hickenlooper and Lt. Gov. Donna Lynne that Colorado has received a grant to fund a senior advisor on aging position in the governor's office.

"We know the road to address the changing age demographics in Colorado is largely shaped by policy," Mr. Chayet said at Tuesday's announcement. "The senior advisor on aging will help cut across the health care, housing, transportation and finance sectors and shape policy that will support the advancement and innovation of products and services for future generations."

NextFifty Initiative is an independent Colorado grant-making foundation dedicated to the state's vulnerable and under-served aging population. NextFifty Initiative is providing a renewable annual grant that will be up to $450,000 to fund the senior advisor on aging position for the next three years.

"It's crucial that we keep care for our seniors a priority," Gov. Hickenlooper said at Tuesday's announcement. "This advisor will advance the state's strategic action plan on aging and keep the concerns of older Coloradans at the forefront for this administration and beyond."

"Our goal is to make sure Colorado's seniors can continue pursuing their passions and contributing to their communities," added Lt. Gov. Lynne.

Colorado is expected to have more than 1.2 million residents age 65 and over by 2030. It's important that private and public leaders understand the unique issues and needs that will come with such a significantly larger senior population.

The advisor will drive leadership on senior issues and focus on the coordination of key aging-related concerns like mobility, health care, housing and more. Responsibilities for the role will include:

  • Leading planning, coordination and policy guidance on all issues related to the aging population.
  • Advise the governor and state legislative leaders on policy on aging issues.
  • Advise the Governor's Executive Council on Aging and coordinate with national policy leaders as well to ensure the state's policies on aging reflect best practices.
  • Work across foundations, health care providers and private sector initiatives to address funding gaps to support high impact programs across the state.
