Massachusetts was the source for 40 applications to AARP’s Community Challenge grant program and, although two were chosen by the national organization, AARP’s state office has announced four additional grant recipients.
The Community Challenge Grants program is part of AARP’s nationwide Livable Communities initiative, which aims to make communities great places to live for people of all ages. The program was open to 501(C) (3) and 501(C) (4) non-profits and government entities.
Massachusetts recipients of the AARP Community Challenge Grants were announced in September.
The four additional gran recipients awarded by AARP MA are Elder Services of Worcester Area, Inc., Newton Council on Aging, Watertown Council on Aging and Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly – Boston Chapter (LBFE). For more information on these projects, see AARP’s announcement.
