Applications will be accepted for projects that improve public spaces, housing, transportation and civic engagement; support diversity, equity and inclusion; build engagement for programs under new federal laws; and pursue innovative ideas that support people age 50 or older.

Livability News & Notes
Take a Small-House Tour
— Speaking of the AARP Community Challenge, a 2021 grant helped fund the publication of a free, online book featuring 26 accessory dwelling unit designs from a competition hosted by the City of Houston’s Planning and Development Department.
A Better Way to Staff Nursing Homes
— So-called “Green House” homes, an alternative to traditional nursing homes, are best known for being smaller structures that house fewer residents (a dozen give or take) and have the look and feel of a “real home.” They also differ in their workforce model, which is designed to improve the quality of work life for its staff, especially the nursing assistants.
AARP Public Policy Institute
— The annual 50+ Cycling Survey seeks to learn more about how and why older adults ride bikes. Is it to remain physically active? Is it for fun and relaxation? Is it a way for getting around? (Past survey participants are encouraged to participate again.)
