Brooklyn-wide Interagency Council on Aging

Grassroots organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of seniors in Brooklyn.



Due to the evolving/increasing coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak we have decided to cancel our BWICA meetings until further notice.  BWICA will continue to monitor developments and further announcements from all public health authorities, and will keep you updated with any new information. 

The health and safety of all BWICA members is most important to us.

If you do not have a doctor or insurance and think you may be sick and need to be tested for coronavirus, call the state's helpline at 888-364-3065

Our Early Interpretation of What's to Come


Yesterday, the U.S. Government passed CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security), the largest aid package in our nation’s history, as part of an effort to combat the economic devastation wrought by COVID-19. The Act is 800 pages long and will take some time to digest. There’re likely to be changes, updates, interpretations and mis-interpretations; and perhaps amendments. A lot of information is floating around, many good, some not. That’s part of why we’re here to help.
