AARP AARP States Idaho Community

Grants Available to Make Communities Livable for all Ages


AARP staff and volunteers across the country are working with local leaders and organizations to enhance the quality of life for all people of all ages.

Our most comprehensive program to make this vision a reality is the AARP Network of Age Friendly Communities. This ever-growing network includes more than 170 enrolled communities across more than three-dozen states, representing more than 65 million people. (Check out The Member List.)

To help support communities and create change in both AARP age-friendly network and non-network communities, AARP plays several key roles, including advocating on important issues, engaging citizens, providing resources and expertise, and serving as a catalyst and convener

We know that great communities take time to build and sustain. But "quick actions" can be the critical spark for longer-term progress. That's why the AARP Community Challenge will fund projects to help build momentum. Projects can range from short-term activities costing a few hundred dollars to sizable efforts that might need thousands.
