Communities for a Lifetime

The Aging & Adult Services Agency is proud to offer communities across the state the chance to be recognized for engaging in an assessment and improvement planning process that helps make their community more "aging-friendly" through its Communities for a Lifetime (CFL) program.

As Michigan's population ages, communities that adapt to meet the needs of older adults, their families, and caregivers, will attract and retain more residents and be able to provide them with a better quality of life.

The CFL program is part of a broader national movement called Creating Aging Friendly Communities and was developed by the Michigan Commission on Services to the Aging in 2007 with input from the State Advisory Council on Aging.

The following communities have been recognized as a CFL:

A community must conduct an “aging-friendly” community assessment, establish priorities and develop a community action plan to qualify for CFL recognition.
