Two challenging realities facing many communities are the lack of housing, especially affordable housing, and the rate of which our population is aging. The solution: ADUs.
AARP Community Challenge grant program is back again for 2023 but with two additional grant opportunities. Help spread the word to leaders in your community!

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has affected communities across the country, hit older adults incredibly hard, and put a spotlight on a host of disparities.

With limited supply and high costs, AARP Ohio is promoting affordable housing initiatives across the state, such as revised zoning laws to allow accessory dwelling units.
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 in 2017 to fund projects that build momentum to improve livability for all. We are excited to announce the program is back in 2021 for its fifth year and is currently accepting applications online through April 14, 8:00 p.m. ET.
