In 2023, AARP DC continued its fight for policies that help empower District residents to improve their lives and choose where and how they live as they age. AARP DC has a long history of supporting older District residents who want to live independently as they age, which is why as the District Council crafts its budget for the upcoming year, we are focused on three main objectives. The District Council must increase funding for senior nutrition programs; increase funding to help seniors connect with their community; and ensure appropriate resources are available for grandparents and close relatives caring for a child.
Earlier this month, the Mayor and DC Council were sworn in to begin a new term. The 2022 election and redistricting that happened after 2020 means you may have a new Councilmember representing your Ward. It is important to know how to be in touch with those who represent you, including the At-large Councilmembers. To find out if your Ward has changed and who your Councilmembers are, visit https://dccouncil.gov/, scroll to the bottom of the website and type in your address in the “Find your Councilmember” section. There you will also learn what committees they serve on and how to contact them.
