Chances are good you’ve settled comfortably into your home and aren’t planning to rent a moving van any day soon. AARP surveys consistently show that people 50+ wanted to stay in their current homes as long as possible; but research also indicates that often the homes we live in may not meet your changing needs. Does your home have stairs? How wide are those doors and hallways? How accessible are your bathrooms? Whether you are planning to stay or are considering moving, planning ahead now will serve you well in the future.

Three small organizations with big plans have been selected to receive Community Action Sponsorships from AARP Vermont to support their efforts to make Burlington a more livable city.  AARP Vermont launched the Community Action Sponsorship Program in 2010 as a way to provide modest grant funds and technical support to community groups whose missions were consistent with those of the Burlington Livable Community Project. This citywide collaborative project seeks to prepare Burlington for the rapidly aging demographic shift – particularly in the areas of housing, mobility and community engagement.
