The 2016 Great Places in Louisiana nomination period is now open.
The Great Places in Louisiana Awards Program recognizes individuals, organizations and local governments that are working to make their community livable for all people.
So, what exactly is a Great Place?
Great Places are places where people of all ages and abilities can live throughout their lifetime.
Great Places are livable communities where people have access to affordable and appropriate housing, adequate mobility options, and supportive community features. A livable community allows older adults to live independently and gives them an opportunity to engage in community life.
