DC's Progress

Plan to join us for the Age-Friendly DC Task Force meeting, Tuesday, Nov 16, 2021, 1-3 pm. The agenda and the link for this virtual meeting will be posted at the beginning of November. Or you can email [email protected], if you want to be placed on the invitation list.




Age-Friendly DC released its first five-year plan in December 2014. Progress addressing goals and strategies developed by the Task Force and its Domain Task Force Committees was reported annually. Then in 2017, Age-Friendly DC completed an evaluation, consulting DC residents throughout the city. That evaluation led to the Five-Year Progress Report to the World Health Organization.

The World Health Organization, then Director of Ageing and Life Course, Dr. John Beard, traveled from Geneva Switzerland to congratulate Mayor Muriel Bowser on Age-Friendly progress completed in the District.

In February 2018, Mayor Muriel Bowser established a 2018-2023 Age-Friendly DC Task Force, which forged ahead. Using progress achieved in the first five years as a foundation, the Age-Friendly DC Task Force worked through Task Force Committees to recommend content for the 2023 Strategic Plan.

Mayor Muriel Bowser released the Age-Friendly 2023 Strategic Plan[PDF] in October 2018.

In January 2021 Mayor Muriel Bower’s office presented the Age-Friendly DC Two-Year Progress Report[PDF].
