Funding Opportunities

AARP Community Challenge

The AARP Community Challenge will fund projects to help make communities livable for people of all ages. Projects can range from short-term activities costing a few hundred dollars to sizable efforts that might need thousands. Projects need to deliver on one or all of the following drivers for change: 
  • Improve a community’s built environment to benefit people of all ages and ability levels and connect to the social environment.
  • Expand opportunities for all residents, such as through jobs, volunteerism, educational opportunities and training.
  • Drive community engagement and interaction across diverse community residents via, for instance, efforts in the domains of culture and art, local communications, public spaces and placemaking, sports, education, well-being, healthy living, etc.
