AARP Community Challenge

Coming soon! Grants for projects that help make communities more livable for people of all ages

2018 AARP Community Challenge


Last year, for the first-ever AARP Community Challenge, AARP invested nearly $780,000 to create change and improve the quality of life for people of all ages in communities nationwide. We received almost 1,200 applications, resulting in a highly competitive process to select 88 winning grantees.

(Read the list of winning projects and see a few of them live in this video.) 

The 2018 challenge will be announced on March 21. Please return to this page on or after that date for the grant application and instructions for how to apply. 

Livable for People of All Ages

To help support communities and create change, AARP plays several key roles, including advocating on important issues, engaging citizens, providing resources and expertise, and serving as a catalyst and convener.

Our most comprehensive program to make community livability for people of all ages a reality is the AARP Network of Age Friendly Communities. This ever-growing network includes more than 200 enrolled communities across more than three-dozen states, representing more than 67 million people. (Check out The Member List.)
