No homes for aging boomers? AARP study offers solutions to the next looming housing crisis

September 3, 2014

The recent study conducted jointly by Harvard and the AARP found that there is a housing shortage for aging Americans, but there are some solutions. The main issues are affordability, accessibility to the community, and accessibility within the home. An AARP Foundation study shares several innovations that can help bypass this crisis, such as tax credits for homeowners making their residences more accessible, or incentives for developers to build affordable housing near mass transit.
