Livable Communities

This past July, AARP Nebraska announced the launch of a rare and unique Omaha architecture design competition called “An ADU for U.” An Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) is a small house or apartment residing on a single-family residence’s property lot. They can be located within, attached, or detached from the primary residence.
Six localities across the state have received 2023 AARP Community Challenge grants for quick-turnaround projects that will help make their areas more livable for residents of all ages.
The competition challenges designers and builders to help meet housing needs with affordable, age-friendly ADU plans. October 13 is the deadline for submitting a plan.
Grantees will implement quick-action projects that help communities become more livable.
The annual program aims to make communities in Nebraska more livable for people of all ages.
Accessory Dwelling Units are a family-friendly housing option for older adults who want to age in place, downsize or provide a place for their loved ones to stay.
