Grantees will implement “quick-action” projects to create more livable communities across all 50 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Vote
The coronavirus pandemic has twice forced the rescheduling of Connecticut’s presidential primary elections, but voters there are now expected to cast their ballots on Aug. 11. The state government has expanded absentee ballots to all eligible voters and is in the midst of a public information push to keep people informed about how to safely participate in the primaries.

Connecticut State Capitol in Hartford, Connecticut
AARP Connecticut commends Governor Ned Lamont and the Connecticut General Assembly on the decision to address four urgent issues during an upcoming special session: expanding absentee voting for the November election, making telehealth more accessible, capping the cost of insulin, and police accountability. AARP Connecticut recognizes the importance of these topics and supports their inclusion in a special session, but the state’s legislative leaders missed an opportunity to tackle the critical issues impacting those in nursing home and residential care facilities.
