The AARP has issued a Community Challenge to fund small “quick-action” projects that would help communities become more livable for residents of all ages. Applications are being accepted through May 15 for projects that look to improve housing, transportation, public space, technology, civic engagement, and more.
AARP will prioritize projects that increase civic engagement, create vibrant public spaces by improving amenities and access, increase connectivity, increase access to affordable housing options, and other general community improvements from temporary demonstrations to permanent physical improvements.
The grants are not capped and can range from several hundred dollars to tens of thousands depending on the size and concept.
The program is open to 501 c 3,4, and 6 nonprofits and government entities.
All applications are due by 11:59 p.m. May 15, 2020.
