We have been selected as a 2024 AARP Community Challenge Grantee! 

Anderson Housing & Homeless Alliance is thrilled to announce we have been selected to receive a 2024 AARP Community Challenge grant. We are one of only 343 grantees selected (out of 3,300+ applications!) from across all 50 states, Washington D.C, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. 

With this quick-action grant we will host a housing choice design competition for safe, accessible cottages for seniors.

“We are incredibly proud that AARP selected Anderson Housing & Homeless Alliance  for this investment to make Anderson more livable for residents of all ages,” stated Zoë Hale. “AARP is a nationwide leader in making communities more livable and we are honored that they see the tangible value this project will bring to our area.” 

About the AARP Community Challenge 

The AARP Community Challenge grant program funds innovative, quick-action projects that inspire change in areas such as public places; housing; transportation; digital connectivity; community resilience; and more. With additional funding support provided by Toyota Motor North America, the program is also increasing its investment in pedestrian safety projects that will improve streets and sidewalks, create vibrant pedestrian infrastructure, engage community members and much more. 

This is all part of AARP’s nationwide work on livable communities, which supports the efforts of neighborhoods, towns, cities and counties across the country to become great places for all. AARP believes that communities should provide safe, walkable streets; affordable and accessible housing and transportation options; access to needed services; and opportunities for residents to participate in community life.
