ASCOG currently funds ten projects including the Legal Aid project, the Center for Creative Living Education and Training project, the Cyril Nutrition Project, the Delta Nutrition Project, the Temple Nutrition Project, MaddieLuke Supportive Services and the coordination of services programs at the Grandfield, Minco, Tipton and Tuttle Senior Centers.

Older Americans Act funding for ASCOG is provided through DHS Aging Services.  ASCOG makes no distinction on the grounds of race, color, sex, age, ancestry, national origin, religion or disability.
