Research Brief: Age-Friendly Columbus

Central Ohio’s 65+ population is expected to double in the next 30 years. This poses a great opportunity for the region to provide easy access to services, amenities, and opportunities to ensure we can all thrive as we age. Age-Friendly Columbus is a project to strengthen the quality of life for people of all ages across Franklin County and Central Ohio. After a year-long research and assessment phase and a year-long strategic planning phase, Age-Friendly Columbus is now in the implementation phase to make changes happen in our community. The Ohio State University College of Social Work will act as the administrative arm and collaborative partner for the Age-Friendly Columbus initiative during the 2018-2020 implementation period.
