AARP New Jersey is putting more green space in the Garden State. To advance its livable-community goals, AARP gave grants to two Community Challenge projects in New Jersey.
This summer four Iowa communities received AARP Community Challenge grants to jump-start beautification and accessibility projects. The Iowa grants, which totaled more than $17,000, will help the Avoca Public Library build a musical park for concerts and a green space for gatherings, enable the Keokuk Parks Foundation to convert tennis courts into dedicated pickleball courts, fund decorative lighting on Main Street in Manning, and share the Woodbine community’s history by mounting signs on buildings and in pocket parks along Main Street.
Communities across Washington are working each and every day to become more livable for residents of all ages.
Creative work from communities across the nation -- including three in Montana -- is showcased in the third edition of AARP’s Where We Live: Communities for All Ages series. This edition shares more than 100 articles and dozens of photographs on the ways communities throughout the U.S. are becoming great places to live for people of all ages. It also highlights mayors and other community leaders who are making this change happen. All 50 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico are featured in the book.
