AARP Minnesota

Helping connect Minnesotans to resources that help them save money and live their best life
We know that it takes time to build great communities. But we also believe that tangible improvements can spark long-term change. AARP launched the Community Challenge grant program in 2017 to fund projects that build momentum to improve livability nationwide. We are excited to announce the program is back in 2024 for its eighth year and is currently accepting applications online through March 6, 2024 at 4:00 p.m. CT.
The heart of AARP Minnesota's work revolves around our volunteers. We are grateful to our volunteers who bring to life AARP’s purpose to empower people to choose how they live as they age. AARP volunteers are skilled, dedicated and passionate about giving back to their communities and helping the 50-plus population live their best lives.
