For the first-ever AARP Community Challenge, AARP received almost 1,200 applications, resulting in a highly competitive selection process. As a “quick action” grant, the winners were announced on September 7 and given a completion deadline of November 1, 2017.
Each project delivers on one or all of the following:
- Improve social connections through the built environment for people of all ages and abilities
- Expand work, volunteer, educational and/or training opportunities for all residents
- Drive inclusive community engagement and interaction across a diverse population
Yavapai Regional Transit was one of two organizations in Arizona selected for this grant.
Chino Valley: Yavapai Regional Transit Inc. | Transportation Options
The grant will be used to install a much-needed ADA-compliant pad and walkway at a transit station.
