Action Plan Download
Hyattsville developed its action plan focusing on housing, health and safety, home and community-based services, and communications and information. The plan looks to ensure that Hyattsville residents will have housing options to meet their changing needs and preferences as they age, and that older residents can live in their homes and move about the community free from barriers and violence of any kind. The plan also works to provide Hyattsville residents with coordinated, community-based support that will allow them to age safely and with dignity in the community.

Health and Community ServicesIncrease access to healthy, affordable food by working with businesses, faith communities, and non-profit organizations.
