Livable Communities

Gardening together
Today, AARP Pennsylvania announced five Pennsylvania organizations will receive 2021 Community Challenge grants – part of the largest group of grantees to date with $3.2 million awarded among 244 organizations nationwide. 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 with an emphasis on the needs of the 50-plus. Many of this year’s awards support revitalizing communities adversely impacted by the pandemic and include a focus on diversity, inclusion, and disparities.

Walking on a Sunny Day at the Park
AARP Pennsylvania invites everyone to get active with Pittsburgh City Councilwoman Erika Strassburger at Schenley Park, one of the community's most beautiful assets, on Thursday, July 12. This is a great opportunity to get some fresh air, meet some new people, and hear from a local legislator about current city initiatives. The Venture Outdoors staff have planned a low intensity walk through the park in order to accommodate participants with varying levels of physical fitness.
