- Flagship Grants fund projects that benefit residents, including improving open spaces, transportation and mobility improvements, high-speed internet expansion, and investments in disaster management, preparedness, and mitigation.
- Capacity-Building Microgrants fund projects that enhance neighborhood walkability and create community gardens.
- Demonstration Grants fund projects that demonstrate and encourage replication in areas of transportation and housing.
Applications must be submitted online by March 15, 2023. For more information, including a Q&A Webinar, Frequently Asked Questions, and application form, please visit the AARP Grant webpage.
