The Washington DC Economic Partnership has partnered with Age-Friendly DC to launch a pilot initiative to recognize Washington, DC businesses whose products, services, and practices help make the city an inclusive environment for older adult customers.

In 2016, we are expanding this effort throughout the city and invite you to apply. If selected as an “Age-Friendly Business,” you will receive a certificate and decal to proudly display in your business and on promotional materials. Details of your age-friendly business practices will be promoted at events and on websites and publications that reach older consumers and your business will be recognized at a special ceremony.
