Guiding Principles for the Sustainability of Age-Friendly Community Efforts

How do we build on the age-friendly community movement's successes to date and accelerate sustainable progress at local, state, national, and international levels? Grantmakers In Aging (GIA) brought together national and international leaders to explore a variety of issues related to the concept and to its sustainability. Through key informant interviews, focus groups, and a two-day leadership summit held in September 2015 in Washington, DC, we distilled best practices in sustainable age-friendly communities work that resulted in the framework presented in this document. This framework is an important outcome of GIA’s Community AGEnda initiative, a three-year effort to increase age-friendly activities in selected United States regions that was supported by The Pfizer Foundation.
