This countywide community-based Age Friendly Coalition (formerly "task force") supports implementation of Age Friendly Seattle and is available to assist suburban cities and communities in launching age-friendly initiatives. The coalition and its steering committee meet on alternate months, third Fridays. Four additional committees meet on their own schedules—Active Transportation & Outdoor Spaces; Housing; Outreach, Advocacy & Communications; and Social & Civic Participation.

All meetings are "open table." Please join us! For meeting information, click here.

Currently, the coalition and its committees are staffed by the Age Friendly Seattle team. For other information, e-mail agefriendly@seattle.gov.
