Who is a member?
Our members are the local governments of Massachusetts and their elected and appointed leadership.
On Jan. 10, the AARP Community Challenge opened its application period for small grants to fund quick-action projects that can help communities become more livable for people of all ages.
In 2024, the AARP Community Challenge will be accepting applications for three different grant opportunities: Flagship Grants, Capacity-Building Microgrants, and Demonstration Grants.
Grant funding is available for local governments and nonprofits that are eager to work on a community-improving project that can be started and completed before year’s end.
The application deadline is March 6, and applicants will be notified by email of their selection status in mid-May.
June 12 is the deadline for grantees to return their completed memorandum of understanding and vendor forms, and a live public announcement of the selected grantees will be held on June 26.
All projects must be completed by Dec. 15, and after-action reports are due by Dec. 31.
An optional Q&A webinar will be held at 2 p.m. on Jan. 31. (Register)
