2018 AARP Community Challenge Grantee
This grant helped to provide solutions to four lower income and elderly individuals in order to maintain retain home ownership
The AARP Community Challenge grant enabled the MicroLife Institute to create a video documentary â€” called Something Small: Atlanta ADUs â€” about the ways accessory dwelling units can help people age in place. Funds were also used to demonstrate the viability of "micro ADUS" of 200- to 500-square-feet. (The pictures below show a "tiny home" ADU and two homes built out of cargo ship containers.) For property owners â€” such as one who appears in an AARP video about the institute's grant â€” an ADU can provide rental income from either the ADU itself or by moving into it and renting the lot's primary dwelling.
