The Member List

260 communities (and counting), from Texas to Michigan, from Honolulu to Washington, D.C.

The communities listed below, presented in alphabetical order by state and representing more than 70 million people, have joined the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities. Membership does not mean that AARP is endorsing any of the following municipalities as a place to live. Nor does it mean that the community listed is currently "age-friendly." What membership means is that the community's elected leadership has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city, county or state a great place for people of all ages.

The stars represent member towns, cities and counties in the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities.

Age-friendly communities are, by their nature, inclusive and considerate of the perspectives of all residents, of all ages, and all persuasions. Age-friendly communities encourage and benefit from diverse citizen engagement by encouraging signatories to engage residents in a process to identify the community’s needs, and develop and implement an action plan to address those needs.

Participation in the network involves following a multi-step process of improvement. A link to the community's age-friendly action plan has been added to this list if the town or city has reached Step 2 of the improvement process.

If an AARP Community Survey has been completed, or if the community has been featured in an AARP Livable Communities slideshow, interview or "how to" article, those links are provided as well. If you have questions, please write to Livable@AARP.org. For easy access to the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities Tool Kit, bookmark or visit AARP.org/AgeFriendly.
