AARP is pleased to welcome Minnesota as the tenth state to join the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities. Membership is a commitment to engaging older residents in efforts to improve the state’s infrastructure, systems and social environment. The network provides access to resources and information on age-friendly best practices being developed and implemented in other Age-Friendly states and over 600 communities across the nation.
The AARP Community Challenge program has awarded six grants in Minnesota communities this year to fund quick-action projects to improve housing, transportation, public spaces, civic engagement and connection with others.
Created in 2019, the Governor’s Council on an Age-Friendly Minnesota plans to submit its final recommendations this year. AARP is also continuing to support communities and work with state legislators to set up a permanent age-friendly council that will enable more change across the state.
