The Silver Tsunami: Are We Prepared for a Senior Population Boom in Rural America
The Housing Assistance Council (HAC) is pleased to invite you to participate in a webinar on demographic change and its impact to the rural population and rural housing. The senior population will experience significant increases in the coming years, as the Baby Boom generation turns 65. The Census Bureau projects the senior population will grow from 13 percent of U.S. residents to 20 percent by 2050. An added 30 million individuals will become seniors over the next 20 years. Currently there are more than 18 million rural baby boomers, comprising nearly 28 percent of the rural population. With increasing life expectancies, one of the more dramatic growth trends will likely be substantial growth of the oldest population (age 85 and over). Is there enough safe and affordable housing for this expanding population?
Using data from U.S. Census and the American Community Survey, HAC will provide insights on changes and trends in aging and the potential impact of these changes on people, communities, and housing markets in rural areas of the United States.
This webinar is supported by The Atlantic Philanthropies. For more information, please email Janice Clark at Janice@ruralhome.org.
