Communities across Oregon are working to become more livable for residents of all ages. AARP is working in partnership with local leaders, organizations, and dedicated residents to help make that vision a reality. As part of that effort, AARP Oregon is pleased to announce the Age-Friendly Communities Grants, with four grantees from across the state. These grants fund innovative projects that inspire change in transportation, public spaces, diversity and inclusion, civic engagement, and more. The grantees were chosen from applicants for the national AARP Community Challenge Grant and are funded by AARP Oregon. In June, six national grantees were announced.
Across the state, these exciting and diverse projects were funded:
“AARP Oregon Age-Friendly Communities Grants seek to help communities across Oregon become great places for people of all backgrounds, abilities and ages, especially people 50-plus,” said Bandana Shrestha, AARP Oregon State Director. “We know that quick-action projects like these can spark innovation and catalyze long-lasting change.”
AARP’s nationwide work on livable communities supports the efforts of neighborhoods, towns, cities and counties across the country to become great places for all residents.
