Every single day, AARP Idaho volunteers fuel our work in communities across the Gem State. Without the hundreds who donate their time, skills and passion, we wouldn’t have enough capacity to help older Idahoans transform their lives. If you would like to learn more about our volunteer opportunities we encourage you to reach out and discover all of the unique opportunities at AARP Idaho.

Communities across Arkansas are working each and every day to become more livable for residents of all ages. In support of that work, AARP is excited to be able to provide funding to organizations through the AARP Community Challenge, now in its third year. These “quick action” grants are being distributed to 159 organizations, with at least one in every state, Washington D.C, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, including right here in Arkansas. The Community Challenge grants fund innovative projects that can inspire change in areas such as transportation, open spaces, housing, smart cities and more. The Community Challenge is part of AARP’s nationwide work on livable communities, which supports the efforts of neighborhoods, towns, cities and counties across the country to become great places for all residents. We believe that communities should provide safe, walkable streets; affordable and accessible housing and transportation options; access to needed services; and opportunities for residents to participate in community life. After funding 217 projects between 2017 and 2018, AARP has increased its investment to nearly $1.6 million for 159 projects this year. Here in Arkansas, we are excited about the work that the Community Challenge Grants are supporting this year: · City of Benton is awarded $14,400 to enhance the walkability and aesthetics of their downtown. The project will replace normally colored crosswalks with colorful thermoplastic ones.
