AARP Foundation's grants program reflects our commitment to transforming the lives of vulnerable older Americans by meeting their everyday needs — food, housing, income and personal connection. Through our investment in grantees we seek to improve the lives of vulnerable, low-income older Americans in communities across the country so together we can build a country free of poverty, where no older person feels vulnerable.
