Join AustinUP

The Austin area has the nation’s fastest-growing population of people between 55 and 64, and the second fastest-growing population of people 65 and over. We will soon have more older adults than children in Central Texas. Yet, policy priorities, funding, and opportunities for older adults are all but invisible. We need to take action…now.

AustinUP is working to prioritize the unmet needs of the Central Texas aging population, tap the talents of older adults to improve our community, and embrace innovation and creativity in the pursuit of not just an age-friendly culture, but one that is age-progressive. Please join us!

AustinUP is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. As a publicly supported organization, AustinUP relies on the generosity of individuals, businesses and community groups to advance our mission.
