Lead Agency: Reno Age-Friendly Action Planning Team
Reno developed its action plan in collaboration with the Reno Age-Friendly Action Planning Team. Reno's plan advocates for aging in place and creating a more affordable, age-friendly housing policy. The plan also supports and advocates for affordable transportation options for older adults, improved connections to in-home and community services that older adults need to safely and securely remain at home, and increased opportunities for enriching the personal connections between community members.
Action Plan Highlights
HousingIncrease affordable housing options by creating rent vouchers, more shared units, missing middle housing, and supporting the construction of ADUs and tiny homes.
TransportationIncrease transit options by reviewing existing networks, adding additional capacity to accommodate older adults, and increasing volunteer driving networks.
Health and Community ServicesCollaborate with existing networks to expand the number of older adult caregivers.
