Age Wave Planning
The Greater Richmond Age Wave Planning effort is a coalition of public and private organizations, businesses, and citizens working together to ensure that the region is Age Wave prepared.
The Greater Richmond Age Wave Plan provides a map of components that will achieve age wave readiness for the region and outlines the goals, indicators, objectives and strategies to achieve those goals.
Ultimately the plan provides a tool for strategic planning, coordinating efforts, achieving economies of scale and measuring progress. It can be used by public and private agencies, for profit and not-for-profit organizations, funders, local governments, universities, coalitions, associations, businesses and partnerships.
The Greater Richmond Age Wave Planning effort is led by the Age Wave Planning Leadership Council, supported by four category specific Work Groups and staffed through a joint venture of United Way of Greater Richmond & Petersburg and Senior Connections, The Capital Area Agency on Aging.

Implementation Phase: Coalition Meeting
On Friday, January 25, 2013, the Greater Richmond Age Wave coalition gathered to learn from three successful planning initiatives across the Commonwealth. Leaders from Charlottesville, Williamsburg and Rappahannock Rapidan region shared, in approximately 12 minutes, best practices, challenges and practical advice to our coalition on implementing a completed regional plan and moving it to action.
Phases of Planning: Community Input
On Tuesday, September 20, 2011, a group of over 200 regional stakeholders came together to provide feedback, perspective, insight and experience to develop a shared understanding and to prioritize regional strategies for the Greater Richmond Age Wave Plan.
