AARP Vermont is committed to helping towns and organizations create livable, vibrant communities for older adults to live and thrive. Great communities take a long time to build and sustain, but quick actions can be the critical spark for longer-term progress.

AARP Vermont’s 2022 Winter Placemaking Grants will provide financial support in the amount of $4,000 per project to non-profit or ad-hoc groups that meet the eligibility requirements and are focused on reinventing or activating a public space during the winter months through programming or infrastructure improvements to enhance the safety, accessibility and overall appeal.

This is the fourth year of the program, which aims to help communities build social capital that can help lead to permanent change that supports healthy, active lifestyles for people of all ages and abilities.
