About the Age-Forward 2030 Program

The Milken Institute Center for the Future of Aging's Age-Forward 2030 program engages cross-sectoral policymaking to help communities prepare for an older, increasingly diverse, and economically stratified population.

Our work challenges communities to advance inclusive economic development, resilience, age-friendly innovation, technology solutions, and civic engagement.

 

2019 Innovation Award

 

The Milken Institute Center for the Future of Aging is partnering with the SCAN Foundation for the 2019 Innovation Award. We are seeking to identify cities in California who are preparing their communities for the growth of their older adult population and embracing innovation opportunities. To learn more about the award, download the Age-Forward Innovation Brochure. We are currently reviewing applications.
