Our Focus Areas
Connect older adults to resources, assist partners to make holistic and strategic decisions about aging services, and help local communities build aging-friendly places for the rapidly growing older adult population.
Facilitate coordinated regional projects and build capacity for local economic development activities that attract investment in large, small, urban, suburban, and rural communities.
Build a sustainable and resilient region through relationship-building, resource prioritization, and projects that improve the efficiency and sustainability of community design and services.
Work directly with local governments, community organizations, and developers to preserve, improve, and build quality, affordable housing, and structure a regional housing approach that embraces the
continuum of housing needs – from homelessness to homeownership.
A comprehensive array of strategic and technical services to help member governments address evolving public sector workplaces, and make data-driven, strategic decisions amidst an ever-changing region.
Technical support and guidance on long-term, large-scale, and community-specific plans while stressing an
approach that considers investment impacts in the broader community context of growth, economic development, sustainability, and housing availability.
