At AARP Foundation, we envision a future without senior poverty. More than 37 million adults age 50 and older — 1 in 3 —  are at risk of not having enough to meet their most basic needs. A problem this big can’t be solved with a “business as usual” approach.

AARP Foundation’s grantmaking supports sustainable, real-world solutions to the fundamental challenges facing low-income older adults. We collaborate with grantee and partner organizations to identify evidence-based projects that transform lives and communities — projects that we know can be expanded nationwide. Through grants, the Foundation enables grantees to help more people, work more efficiently, bring proven new approaches to scale, and make resources go further.

Request for Information: Key Factors to Enable Older Adults to Age in Place

Respondents are invited to comment on the specified topic areas related to aging in place measurement. You may choose to comment on all or some of the topic areas.  Do not include any proprietary, classified, confidential, trade secret, or sensitive information in your response.

The information gathered from the submissions will help inform the development of a Request for Proposals in 2019 to develop a tool to measure aging in place.  Information from the submissions will be compiled for use by AARP Foundation and may be released for public use in 2019. 


All comments must be submitted by no later than December 28, 2018, 11:59 p.m. ET. 

The comment form asks for your comments and perspectives on the current field of aging in place measurement. Our goal is to gain insight into the emergent areas of research on aging in place, key factors that influence aging in place, and potential data sources. The aging in place measurement topics are broad and meant to give respondents the opportunity to comment about as many topics as they see fit.
