|Saratoga County is one of 17 counties participating in the New York State Age-Friendly Planning Grant Program. This grant funds a County-wide self-assessment process under AARP’s 8 Domains of Livability using a Health Across All Policies (HAAP) framework in which non-health focused county departments are given an opportunity to explore how their actions (programs, procurements, and policies) can positively impact health.
Age-friendly and healthy aging concepts are not only about old age; they are about improving the health and wellness of people of all ages. It is about designing communities that strengthen people’s connections to each other, improve health, increase opportunities for physical activity, and support and advance the economic environment through proactive design and future-based planning.
