Kurtz Appointed to Atlanta Area Agency on Aging

by Monica Hoel
Becky Kurtz is heading back to Atlanta after serving as a chief U.S. administrator.

After a successful stint in the office of U.S. Administration for Community Living, where she served as Director of the Office of Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program, Becky Kurtz is heading back to Georgia to put her expertise to work for Atlanta area residents. The following press release from the Atlanta Regional Commission announces the good news for this accomplished civil servant.

(ATLANTA, March 9, 2017)  The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) has named Becky Kurtz manager of the agency’s Aging & Health Resources Division. Kurtz, who starts April 3, will also serve as the Director of the Atlanta Area Agency on Aging (AAA). 

At ARC, Kurtz will lead a team of 50 professionals who plan and provide comprehensive services to address the needs of the Atlanta region’s rapidly growing population of older adults and individuals with disabilities. As the Atlanta AAA Director, Kurtz will manage the allocation of more than $22 million in federal, state and grant funds annually to community-based organizations and local governments that provide direct services to older adults, persons with disabilities, and their families.

Kurtz has been a leader in aging issues at both the federal and state levels. She comes to ARC from the U.S. Administration for Community Living, where she served as Director of the Office of Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program. In this role, she worked to enhance the health, safety and welfare of long-term care facility residents and helped states carry out effective ombudsman programs.  

Previously, she spent 16 years as Georgia’s Long-Term Care Ombudsman and served on the leadership team of the Georgia Division of Aging Services.  She also held leadership roles with the National Association of State Long-Term Care Ombudsman Programs, including a term as president. 

“We are thrilled to have someone with Becky’s expertise and leadership abilities join our team at ARC,” said Emerson Bryan, ARC’s Deputy Executive Director. “Many members of our staff have worked with Becky in the past and are familiar with her passion for serving older adults in our region and her deep knowledge of aging and health issues.” 

A native of western North Carolina, Becky is a graduate of Columbia University School of Law and Emory & Henry College in Virginia.

The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) is the official planning agency for the 10-county Atlanta Region, including Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry and Rockdale counties as well as the City of Atlanta and 72  other cities.  The Atlanta Regional Commission serves as a catalyst for regional progress by focusing leadership, attention and planning resources on key regional issues. As the designated Area Agency on Aging, ARC’s Aging & Health Resources Division is charged with both serving the current needs of current older adults and their families and planning and advocating for future needs and generations. In 2015, approximately 704,516 adults 60 or older lived in the region constituting 37.7 percent of Georgia’s older residents.
