GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (ABC 4)- Many people would love to continue to reside in their current homes and communities for as long as possible, and this is where AARP’s nationwide initiative, “AARP Livable”, comes in. In 2017, the non-profit, nonpartisan organization launched a grant program, “AARP Community Challenge”, to allocate more than $9 million for immediate improvements in communities across “all 50 states, Washington D.C.., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands,” AARP says

In a new episode of AARP Michigan Real Possibilities, Paula D. Cunningham invites three “AARP Community Challenge” winners to discuss how the grant has helped them improve local areas and how more community members can apply. 

Watch the interview above to learn more. 

Guests include: 

  • Matt Penniman, Communications and Advocacy Director, League of Michigan Bicyclists 
  • Xining Yang, Associate Professor, Geographic Information Science Geography & Geology, EMU 
  • Peggy Du, Executive Director, Association of Chinese Americans
