America is getting older -- how is your community responding? If you want to make it more age-friendly, Community AGEnda can help.

What does an age-friendly community look like? We received many different examples in our "Friendly Places, Friendly Faces" photo contest, captured in this new infographic.

Another infographic, Blueprint for Success, can help would-be age-friendly communities find important starting points for their work.

For an overview of the age-friendly movement, explore Age-Friendly Communities:The movement to create great places to grow up and grow old in America: An introduction for private and public funders. This document profiles notable age-friendly programs, highlights issues and best practices, and offers insight from the top thought leaders.   

Explore Age-friendly America, our searchable database of more than 200 programs, where you can find out what's going on in your area and nationwide. 

Finally, if you're ready to roll up your sleeves, turn to Aging Power Tools: A curated selection of resources to promote stronger, age-friendly communities. Based on a broad web review and GIA's experience in the field, this toolkit offers a practical framework and a wealth of materials from top practitioners that funders, local governments, and community groups can use to move ahead.
