AARP Awards Grants to Five Connecticut Organizations
AARP Connecticut announced five organizations throughout the state will receive 2023 Community Challenge grants – part of the largest group of grantees to date with $3.6 million awarded among 310 organizations nationwide. Grantees will implement quick-action projects that help communities become more livable by improving public places; transportation; housing; digital connections; diversity, equity and inclusion; and more, with an emphasis on the needs of adults age 50 and older.
“AARP Connecticut is committed to working with local leaders to improve residents’ quality of life through tangible changes,” said Nora Duncan, AARP Connecticut State Director. “We are proud to collaborate with this year’s grantees as they make immediate improvements in their communities to jumpstart long-term change, especially for residents 50 and over.”
