Hoosiers can help make their communities more livable for all residents by conducting walk audits that help evaluate how safe and easy (or not) it is for pedestrians to get around neighborhoods. 
Indiana’s network of trails is growing to accommodate increasing demand, with lawmakers allocating $150 million in recent budgets to the Next Level Trails program for ongoing improvements across the state.

AARP is encouraging Hoosiers to learn about one possible way to help loved ones age in place: accessory dwelling units (ADUs).  
Our philosophy on making a difference to and providing value to local communities nationwide is on display in the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities.
Join AARP Indiana for a virtual conversation on Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) and explore how this underutilized housing option can serve the 50+ population and their families. Depending on the state or community, ADUs can exist in many shapes and sizes, and AARP Indiana staff and volunteers will speak with a local planner in Allen County to discuss which type is permitted in their jurisdiction and a local businesswoman who built an ADU addition on to her home.
