Grants Promote Livable Communities
The AARP Community Challenge grant program is supporting quick-action projects that can help communities become more livable for people of all ages. Nonprofit organizations and government agencies may apply for small grants to improve housing, transportation, public spaces, and smart cities. Eligible projects should demonstrate the ability to accelerate and sustain the community’s livability for all, especially those 50 plus. Grants will range from several hundred dollars for smaller short-term activities to several thousand for larger projects. The application deadline is April 17, 2019. Visit the AARP website to learn more about the Community Challenge and to submit an online application.
