The Age-Friendly Network

The AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities network helps local leaders meet the needs of their community's older adults and prepare for the rapid aging of the U.S. population. (By 2034, America will have more adults age 65 or older than children under 18.) Membership provides elected officials, policymakers and community volunteers with peer support and access to experts and best practices. Learn More

The Community Challenge

Launched in 2017, the annual AARP Community Challenge provides small grants to local governments and nonprofits in order to fund quick-action, ready-to-implement projects that can help communities become more livable for people of all ages. Funded efforts aim to foster community engagement, enhance local housing and transportation options, improve public spaces and support ("smart cities") solutions. Learn More
