Lead Agency: Age-Friendly Teaneck
Teaneck developed this action plan to enhance its affordable housing stock and identify better housing options for older adults. The plan supports aging in place by helping older residents and landlords retrofit their properties to improve safety and accessibility, encourages banks to provide low-interest loans for home repairs, and identifies potential development sites for market rate and affordable housing.
