The Long Term Care Coordinating Council (LTCCC) is the single body in San Francisco to advise the Mayor on policy, planning and service delivery issues for older adults and people with disabilities. Established in 2004 by then Mayor Gavin Newsom, the 40 mayoral-appointed member Council’s mandates are to:
- Advise, implement and evaluate all issues relating to long term care (LTC) and supportive services, including how different service systems interact.
- Make policy recommendations about how to improve coordination within different settings (home-based, community-based, and institutional care) and service sectors (health, supportive services, housing, transportation, et al.)

Frequently Asked Questions:
Are the meetings open to the public?
Yes! Anyone and everyone is welcome to attend any of the meetings, from the Long Term Care Coordinating Council meetings to the various workgroups. Occasionally meetings get canceled or changed, so just be sure to check the calendar for upcoming dates or send us an email (contact us) and we can confirm future meeting dates.
How do I become a member of the LTCCC?
If you’re interested in joining the Council, it’s strongly recommended that you attend at least a couple of meetings, to get a sense of the membership, topic areas, priorities, etc. The LTCCC has limited membership, therefore prospective members will need to apply for an open seat. Applicants go through an interview process and are then formerly nominated by the Mayor. Currently, there are 40 seats and each is designated for a specific category, such as advocate for older adults or a consumer with a disability. When there is an open seat on the council, a posting will be shared on the LTCCC website, emailed out through the email list serve and discussed at the Council meetings. Additionally, anyone is welcome to join any of the existing workgroups at any time – those are also open to the public, have no membership limit, and is another great way to get to know the work of the Council.
What type of projects are the LTCCC and/or the workgroups working on?
To learn more about the projects or efforts of either the larger council or any of the workgroups, we recommend attending an upcoming meeting. You can also review past agendas, minutes and other meeting information, such as presentations, that should give you a sense of current and past projects. All that can be found under each workgroup’s respective pages.
