AARP website, September 2017
AARP is investing nearly $780,000 to create change and improve the quality of life for people of all ages in communities across the nation. We received almost 1,200 applications for our first-ever AARP Community Challenge, resulting in a highly competitive selection process. All projects are set to be completed by November 1, 2017. Scroll down to see this year's 88 winning grantees. Each project will deliver on one or all of the following:
Improve social connections through the built environment for people of all ages and abilities
Expand work, volunteer, educational and/or training opportunities for all residents
Drive inclusive community engagement and interaction across a diverse population

The grant will be used to create public art, murals and an event to bring the community together.
