The purpose of this thesis was to conduct a policy analysis of Title III of the Older Americans Act of 1965 (P.L. 106-501 ). The policy was enacted to assist older adults in combating food insecurity and malnutrition. The policy specifies that federal funding be allocated to states, in order for the states to provide both congregate meal programs and home-delivered meal services to older adults. For this reason, a more in-depth analysis of Title III of the Older Americans Act was conducted in this project, in order to better understand the nutritional needs of older adults, and the need for nutritional services for the older adult population. This study utilized David Gil's policy analysis framework to analyze Title III of the Older Americans Act of 1965 and the analysis indicated that its implementation has not produced the policy's intended outcomes and has not produced its intended goals of reducing food insecurity within the U.S. older adult population.
