NCSL partnered with the AARP Public Policy Institute to examine promising state land use, transportation, and housing policies that may enable aging in place. These policies include integrating land use, housing and transportation; efficiently delivering services in the home; providing more transportation choices; and improving affordable, accessible housing to prevent social isolation.
