Louisville developed its action plan centered around housing and aging in place. The plan focuses on mobilizing volunteers to support home maintenance and develop a sustainable home improvement model for all socioeconomic levels. It also looks to create an intergenerational mentorship program between maintenance volunteer groups and older adults, and calls on the community to develop a list of affordable contractors willing to provide home repair services at a reasonable cost to older adults.
