At AARP we know it takes time to build great communities, but we also believe that quick action can spark longer-term progress. The  AARP Community Challenge grant provides communities across the country with the chance to fund quick action projects that can inspire change in areas such as transportation, open spaces, housing, and other innovative ideas to improve communities and make them better places to live for all ages and abilities.

By 2035 the United States will be a country comprised of more people older than 65 than people under 18. That reality motivates AARP every day to ask questions about how we are adjusting to this coming change. Are we building communities that include housing for all income levels, accessible and affordable transportation options, safe parks and public spaces, networks to prevent social isolation, and so on? These components not only benefit older adults, they create great places for people of all ages and all abilities to live and thrive.  Through an extensive analysis process, AARP has concluded Measure B does not address the above mentioned qualities.
