Special Initiatives

Age-Friendly DC is a coordinated, comprehensive and collective-action effort with goal of ensuring all DC residents are active, connected, healthy, engaged and happy in their environment. It is an overarching policy and community engagement framework, one that involves every aspect of life, from transportation, to housing, to health, to finances. The District’s Age-Friendly effort is starting with adults age 50 and older.

Olmstead Plan 

The Olmstead Plan establishes certain goals of the District to help ensure that community-based treatment is provided to persons with disabilities, when such treatment is appropriate. For an electronic copy of the Olmstead Plan please visit the Office of Disability Rights (ODR) website and read DC One Community for All.
