Livable Communities

AARP awarded Community Challenge grants to four Tennessee organizations for quick-action projects to boost local livability.
Five AARP Community Challenge grants have been awarded around Tennessee in 2022, with three three targeting food insecurity.
AARP Tennessee is working with elected officials and community leaders to focus attention on the affordable housing crisis—particularly on how it limits people’s ability to age in their own homes.
AARP awarded four Community Challenge grants to bolster housing and residential development in the Volunteer State.
Most older Americans want to age in place, staying in their home and community, according to the AARP Public Policy Institute. But to do that, residents need safe, walkable streets and sidewalks.
What Makes a Community Livable?
There’s a lot to see and do in Nashville, but getting around is not so easy for residents who no longer drive. That’s why AARP Tennessee has joined a coalition developing Senior Ride Nashville, an assisted ride service that will provide affordable transportation for residents 60 and older. Clients will pay a small annual membership fee and prepay for low-cost rides.
AARP Tennessee staff and volunteers work to help people 50+ in Tennessee live life to the fullest. We advocate for our members on critical priorities, such as strengthening Social Security, protecting seniors’ access to their doctors, and ensuring all Americans have independence and choice as they age.
