AARP Indiana lives and works in the communities we serve. We offer trusted information, workshops, and opportunities to connect at fun local events. We work with local leaders to make our neighborhoods more livable for people of all ages. To highlight this work, we’ve created a video series that tells our story.
Despite continued suburban sprawl, communities across the nation are taking steps to become better places to live and age in, according to data analyzed from the newly updated AARP Livability Index. More communities are enacting policies to improve livability with notable increases in housing trust funds that set aside revenue for a variety of affordable housing strategies—now in over 200 counties. Along with overall livability trends, AARP identifies the top ten large, mid-size and small cities.
GREENSBORO, NC – With nearly a quarter of the state’s residents expected to be age 60 or older by the year 2030, Guilford County took an important step to become a better place for people of all ages. The County recently applied for the World Health Organization’s status of “age-friendly” by joining the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities.
Here in Massachusetts, we are working with local leaders, volunteers and others to help make our communities more livable and age-friendly. Governor Charlie Baker recently announced that Massachusetts has joined the network of AARP Age-Friendly States and the World Health Organization Global Network of Age Friendly Cities and Communities. AARP praised Governor Baker for his leadership on this issue of importance to Bay State residents of all ages. Massachusetts is only the second state in the nation to take such action after New York enrolled with AARP to become an age friendly state in 2017.
RALEIGH -- To help make North Carolina communities more livable for people of all ages, AARP NC awarded three “Community Challenge” grants to organizations working to expand opportunities and engagement for all residents.
