The 445th Legislative Session of the Maryland General Assembly ended Monday, April 10, 2023. Over the 90 days of the legislative session, dozens of AARP Maryland volunteers reviewed hundreds of bills, from expanding broadband to behavioral health services, testified before the house and senate committees, met with lawmakers, and convened in Annapolis to discuss AARP’s legislative priorities.
AARP advocates on policy issues that matter most to Maryland residents age 50 and over and their families. In our state legislative advocacy efforts, we rely on our hundreds of volunteers and 850,000 members across Maryland.
AARP Maryland is awarding five Baltimore City non-profits a combined $85,650 in funding as winners of AARP 2022 Community Challenge Grants. Now in its sixth year, the program supports quick-action projects that spark change and improve communities in key livability areas of public spaces, transportation, housing, civic engagement, coronavirus recovery, diversity and inclusion, plus other innovative projects.
In addition to their leadership and advisory roles, AARP Maryland Executive Council members represent the state office as spokespersons, serve as liaisons to current and potential strategic community partners, support volunteer team building, and spearhead outreach efforts within various regions of the state.
