USAging has several awards programs to recognize innovation, achievement and leadership in aging.

The top programs developed by USAging members are recognized annually via the USAging Aging Innovations & Achievement Awards.

The USAging President’s Award is presented by USAging's President to honor a colleague in the aging field who has helped advance the mission of USAging.

The USAging Excellence in Leadership Awards are given to AAA and Title VI directors or their affiliates (staff, Board or Advisory Council) who have demonstrated exceptional leadership at the local, state or national level in advancing the mission of the Older Americans Act and preparing communities for our nation’s rapidly aging population.

The USAging Advocacy in Aging Award is our advocacy leadership award, given in recognition of exemplary service to older Americans through public policy advocacy. 

The John A. Hartford Foundation Business Innovation Award recognizes the successes of community-based organizations that are partnering and contracting with health care entities to reduce health care costs and improve the well-being of older adults and people with disabilities in their communities. The award is presented by the Aging and Disability Business Institute, which is administered by USAging.
