If you are an enterprise-ready startup with a product, service, or technology in the market that can serve older adults who are struggling to meet their basic needs. AARP, ready to help you create opportunities to scale your enterprise by bringing it to the communities they serve.
- AARP Foundation’s Innovation Program is seeking startups with solutions that improve the lives and financial well-being of older adults with low income. Some examples of relevant solutions include:
- Tools to strengthen skills and opportunities for older workers who are looking for traditional employment or want to explore self-employment
- Technologies that identify people who may be eligible for benefits and then match them to the right programs
- Tools to recruit, train, and incentivize volunteers for existing programs such as Tax-Aide
The Benefits Access objective team is built to help older adults with low income gain access to benefit programs such as paid family leave, assistance with medical debt, and government support to afford nutritious food.
The goal of the Innovation Program is to increase income and decrease expenditures for older adults with low income, with an overall target of helping them achieve $2.1 billion of increases in income, benefits, and refunds by 2026.
Through the Innovation Program, AARP Foundation works to achieve these goals by partnering with like-minded startups who can help equip older adults with the resources, know-how, and training they need to unlock economic opportunity and build financial resilience.
