Join the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) for the release of a report and a discussion on making communities great places to grow up and grow old. The report identifies key strategies for successfully advancing this work at the local level—facilitating a variety of housing alternatives, expanding transportation options, changing the culture around aging and in many other ways making communities more livable for all residents as they age. Learn how federal programs are increasingly supporting these efforts and about innovative local initiatives nationwide.
