Addressing Housing Challenges Across the U.S.

The home is central to individual and community well-being and should support our lives both today and into the future. While the majority of Americans want to live independently in their homes as they age, we expect that by 2030, our nation will face a severe shortage in accessible and affordable housing to meet the needs of the 1 in 5 Americans who will be over the age of 65 in our country.

In our work to address housing for older adults and their families, AARP and AARP Foundation created the Future of Housing Initiative. We are developing strategies to address the senior housing crisis and make all of our communities affordable and welcoming for people regardless of age, background, circumstance, or physical ability.
