The City of Salinas was selected to receive the 2021 AARP Community Challenge grant. The City was 1 of only 244 grantees selected from across all 50 states, Washington D.C, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. With this “quick-action” grant, the City will create an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) educational campaign to include brochures, bilingual workshops for the public, and a technical workshop for contractors and other professionals that develop ADUs in the City. 

The 2021 grant represents a collective $3.2 million investment by AARP in the 244 communities that were awarded the grant with the goal of creating more livable communities.
