AARP is encouraging individuals and communities to explore ways to make their areas better places to live for residents of all ages.

AARP South Dakota can connect groups with tools, resources and support. Nationally, hundreds of towns, cities and counties—including Sioux Falls and Milbank—have joined the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities.

The network focuses on improving the quality of life for all by making public transit and other key services easily accessible, providing opportunities to participate in community activities, supporting affordable housing and more.

Hundreds of local governments and organizations have also received AARP Community Challenge grants for quick-action projects such as park enhancements and walking paths. AARP has awarded more than $6 million in grants nationwide since the program began in 2017.
