The Public Policy Institute (PPI) is the focal point of public policy research, analysis and development at AARP. Led by AARP Senior Vice President Susan Reinhard, PPI's staff works to design policies that have a significant impact on improving economic security, health care and quality of life.
Founded in 1985, PPI publishes staff research and analysis regularly throughout the year. Publications from 1998 to the present can be found on this site.
PPI also frequently convenes leading policy experts for discussion of key national and state policy issues. In addition, staff provide critical research and analytical support for AARP advocacy efforts and campaigns at the state and federal level.
