Building great places to grow up and grow old
Community AGEnda seeks to help communities across the country become "age-friendly," that is, great places to grow up and grow old.
As part of that effort, in October 2014 GIA awarded a third set of one-year grants, each worth $120,000, to five communities to help them assess the needs of their fast-growing older populations and address those needs in creative, forward-looking ways that will ultimately benefit residents of all ages.
Because the best plans and services do not stop at the city limits, the participating communities will represent areas beyond the boundaries of any one city or town. The Community AGEnda grantees are located in greater Atlanta, greater Kansas City, a statewide effort in Indiana, Miami-Dade County, and Maricopa County, Arizona. Please find a list of the partner communities below.
Funding for Community AGEnda comes from the Pfizer Foundation. Each community was also required to raise a percentage of their grant in matching funds, usually from local sources.
