Lenoir County Program

This fall, we are pleased to  be working with AARP NC to improve housing opportunities for older adults in

the City of Kinston, and Lenoir County. This initiative, Housing Options for Aging in Place (HOAP), is aimed at fulfilling important components of Lenoir County’s Aging Plan — building new housing and remodeling existing homes to better accommodate our region’s growing population of older adults.

 

Working together with key community partners in government and the private sector, we will create a community forum on January 26, 2022 to engage city and county elected officials, agency staff, the for-profit and nonprofit housing sector, and

county residents of all ages. This 2022 event will bring awareness to the community of the importance of modifying

existing housing and creating new housing for our region's older residents.

age friendly home design.
