AARP Oklahoma Awards Oklahoma State University $5,000 Grant for Rural Broadband Hotspot Library Program
AARP Oklahoma presented a $5,000 honorary grant check to Oklahoma State University’s Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources and Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service to support OSU’s rural broadband outreach program.
Grants fund quick-action projects that help communities become more livable in the long term by improving public spaces, transportation, housing, civic engagement, coronavirus recovery, diversity and inclusion and more.
AARP Oklahoma has announced three local organizations will receive 2021 Community Challenge grants – part of the largest group of national grantees to date with $3.2 million awarded among 244 organizations. Grantees will implement quick-action projects to promote livable communities by improving housing, transportation, public spaces, civic engagement, and connection with family, friends, and neighbors, emphasizing the needs of the 50-plus population.
AARP Oklahoma compiled these resources for residents that may need assistance or additional information on utility payments, rent payments or home repairs resulting from severe weather.
Please join AARP Oklahoma for a first-look screening of the Sky Blossom documentary, a raw, candid look at the 24.5 million teens and twenty-somethings caring for a veteran parent or grandparent. The screening will take place March 3 at 7 p.m. CST. This event is free, but registration is required.
AARP is urging all Oklahomans to participate in the 2020 U.S. census. The once-a-decade population count is used to redraw political lines and to determine billions of dollars in state and federal funding levels for social services.
