Livable Communities

Vida Senior Centers, the oldest Hispanic nonprofit in Washington, D.C., won a $2,500 AARP Community Challenge grant to create a community garden. The AARP grants fund quick-turnaround projects that aim to make communities more livable.
Two organizations in Washington have received AARP Community Challenge grants to improve livability.

Aging in place means being able to travel confidently in the community, whether to shop, dine out or connect with friends.
Communities across the nation are working each and every day to become more livable for residents of all ages.
Many residents age 50-plus share common goals: They want Washington, D.C., to be a livable community for people of all ages. They want supportive services for an estimated 75,000 unpaid family caregivers. And they want a strong nest egg for retirement.
