    The AARP Community Challenge grant program is part of the nationwide AARP Livable Communities initiative that helps communities become great places to live for residents of all ages. The program is intended to help communities make immediate improvements and jump-start long-term progress in support of residents of all ages.

    For the first-ever AARP Community Challenge in 2017, AARP received nearly 1,200 applications and chose 88 winning grantees. In 2018, for the second challenge, AARP received almost 1,600 applications and funded 129 quick-action projects.

    In 2019, the grant program will provide funds for community-based “quick-action” projects related to housing, transportation, smart cities and public spaces. The goal is to spark change and build momentum to improve livability for people of all ages.

    Applications are due by April 17, 2019, 11:59 pm (ET)

    All projects must be completed by November 4, 2019
