Porter awarded age friendly grant

The Minnesota River Area Agency on Aging (MNRAAA) will be working with the City of Porter to identify their age-friendly assets and desired assets through community-wide surveys and focus groups.

Data from the surveys and focus groups will be used to develop and implement initiatives that will result in new and/or enhanced assets that have a positive impact on the age-friendliness of Porter and its livability for all ages.

Porter will receive $10,000 to implement one of the identified initiatives. A kick-off meeting will be held at the Porter Community Hall on July 26 at 6:30 p.m.

This project is made possible through a grant from the Southwest Initiative Foundation and staff support from the Minnesota River Area Agency on Aging.
