Livable Communities


Communities across Connecticut all want to be thriving places for people to grow up and grow older. Connecticut for Livable Communities, an initiative of Connecticut’s Commission on Women, Children and Seniors (formerly run by the Commission on Aging), provides information and inspiration for community leaders to prepare for the changing demographics of our state.

The information shared here shines the proverbial light on ideas and innovations across Connecticut, the nation and the world. It also demonstrates where and how to begin to make these community changes. Our partner list is growing, and so too is the urgency, as our population of older adults soars. Join us in shaping more livable communities for Connecticut residents across the lifespan.
