The AARP Community Challenge provides small grants to fund quick-action projects that can help communities become more livable for people of all ages. AARP’s work on livable communities supports the efforts of neighborhoods, towns, cities and counties
nationwide to become more livable. The organization believes that communities should provide safe, walkable streets; affordable and accessible housing and transportation options; access to needed services; and opportunities for residents to participate in civic and community life.
AARP launched the AARP Community Challenge to fund projects that build momentum for change. Applications are accepted for projects to improve public spaces, housing, transportation, civic engagement, coronavirus recovery, diversity and inclusion, and more. AARP will prioritize projects that deliver inclusive solutions that meet the needs of diverse populations, as well as those that directly engage volunteers through permanent or temporary solutions that aim to achieve equitable outcomes.
Applications are due April 14, 2021.
