At this forum on December 8, 2011, AARP and The National Conference of State Legislatures jointly released the new report:"Aging in Place: A State Survey of Livability Policies and Practices", published jointly by the AARP Public Policy Institute and the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL).
Discussion at the forum focused on state land use, transportation and housing policies that help older adults remain in their homes and communities as they age. Speakers provided a behind the scenes look at how states across the country are breaking down the barriers to building livable communities. This includes successful efforts to integrate land use, housing and transportation policy; design complete streets; and provide services and supports at home.
Speakers and panelists:
AARP Public Policy Institute Solutions Forums are designed to create higher visibility on policy issues for AARP among experts from think tanks, academia and other stakeholders, as well as Administration officials and Congressional staff.
The forums are part of PPI core work to inform and influence the policy debate.
