AARP accepting applications for Community Challenge Grant Program
AARP has opened applications for the 2020 AARP Community Challenge grant program to fund “quick-action” projects that spark change across the country, in the categories of civig engagement, public spaces, transportation and mobility, housing access, smart cities and other innovative projects.
In 2019, AARP’s Community Challenge Grants supported a Kona bikeshare community health program with West Hawaii Community Health Center and People’s Advocacy for Trails Hawaii.
The challenge is open to 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4) and 501(c)(6) nonprofits and government entities. Other types of organizations will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
