AARP Wyoming invites community organizations and local governments across the state to apply for the 2021 Community Challenge grant program, now through April 14. Grants fund quick-action projects that can range from several hundred dollars for small, short-term activities to several thousand or tens of thousands for larger projects. Now in its fifth year, the grant program is part of AARP’s nationwide Livable Communities initiative, which supports the efforts of cities, towns, neighborhoods and rural areas to become great places to live for people of all ages.
Two Wyoming localities are using AARP Community Challenge grants to make improvements. Jackson Hole officials will install at least three locally made benches at the Block, a 1.3-acre green space. And the Cokeville Senior Citizens Center will add ramps, replace crumbling concrete and build a new patio with no steps.
Today, AARP announced the awardees for its 2019 AARP Community Challenge grant program, including grants to entities in both Sheridan and Jackson. A total of nearly $1.6 million will be distributed to fund 159 “quick action” projects across the country, helping communities make immediate improvements and jumpstart long-term progress to support residents of all ages.
