- Capacity-Building Microgrants fund projects that enhance neighborhood walkability and bike-ability.
- Demonstration Grants fund projects that improve digital connections to prepare and respond to disasters and reconnect communities divided by infrastructure.
- Flagship Grants fund projects that improve public places; transportation; diversity, equity, and inclusion; civic engagement; community health and economic empowerment; community resilience; and digital connections.
Applications must be submitted online by March 6, 2024. For more information, including a Q&A Webinar, Frequently Asked Questions, and the online application form, please visit the AARP Grant webpage.
