South Salt Lake has a new way for residents to boost their physical and mental health without joining a gym: the AARP-sponsored outdoor fitness park, organized by FitLot in Bickley Park, next to the Columbus Senior Center.
Plans for street improvements and a new housing model will be possible thanks to AARP Community Challenge grants.
AARP Utah is creating volunteer service teams for residents who want to give back to their communities.
AARP is now accepting applications for the 2018 Community Challenge grant program to fund “quick-action” projects that benefit local communities. The grant program is part of AARP’s nationwide Livable Communities initiative, which aims to make communities great places to live for everyone.
We all want to reside in a community that's a great place to live, and AARP wants to help cities across the country and here in Utah get there! That's the basis for the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities program, which encourages cities, towns, and communities to commit to improving their age-friendliness and submit to a rigorous membership assessment cycle.
AARP applauds the bipartisan action taken on July 16, 2015 on S. 192, the reauthorization of the Older Americans Act (OAA) introduced by Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) with Senators Richard Burr (R-NC), Patty Murray (D-WA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The Senate passed the bill the week that the OAA celebrated its 50 anniversary of providing invaluable services to older adults.
