The Age-Friendly Challenge provides development support and financial awards to inspire the Greater Pittsburgh community to rethink how our communities work and make them more inclusive and respectful of every generation.
ABOUT THE AGE-FRIENDLY CHALLENGE
Age-Friendly Greater Pittsburgh is a collaborative initiative started in 2015 through the leadership of the Southwestern Pennsylvania Partnership for Aging (SWPPA). Over the following two years, 90 residents participated in Aging Your Way workshops and 147 leaders representing 84 organizations met to discuss how to make our communities work better for everyone. The resulting Age-Friendly Greater Pittsburgh Action Plan outlines a framework to improve our region around three focus areas: Access, Connection, and Innovation. In order to catalyze action around these focus areas, Lively Pittsburgh is leading the Age-Friendly Challenge: a project development and award competition to support creative ideas which make our region better for all.
