Housing America's Older Adults Release Event

Housing America's Older Adults Release Event

Date: Tuesday, September 02, 2014
Location: Washington Court Hotel, 525 New Jersey Avenue, NW, Washington, DC

Please join AARP Foundation for the release of a groundbreaking new report, HOUSING AMERICA'S OLDER ADULTS—MEETING THE NEEDS OF AN AGING POPULATION, prepared by the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies. 

The U.S. Census Bureau projects that the population aged 50 and over will swell to 133 million by 2030, an increase of more than 70 percent since 2000. Housing will play a central role in the overall well-being of these older adults. Please join us for a presentation of new research, and to discuss the urgent needs of our aging population. How can we ensure that older Americans are financially secure, able to maintain independence, engaged in their communities, and safe and healthy?
