Please let us know, if you are interested attending the Age-Friendly DC Task Force meeting, Thursday, September 12th 10 am - 12 pm.
Actions by Mayor Muriel Bowser and DC Council 2012-2018 (In the Working Appendix)
Age-Friendly DC released its first five-year plan in December 2014. Progress addressing goals and strategies 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, 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 DC 2023 Strategic Plan in October 2018.
Since then in 2019 the Age-Friendly DC Task Force Committees further updated the Age-Friendly DC Working Appendix to provide metrics to measure progress as the plan is implemented. (See the March 2023 Working Appendix)
