The U.S. Administration on Aging (AoA) is giving more than $5.1 million to help older adults maintain a level of independence in their communities. Most of the grants (16 new and six continuing) will be spent on providing access to health and supportive services and on removing barriers to those services. Some grants will also improve the overall quality of life for retirement community residents.
