Phase II Pilot Programs
In 2017, SNHPC began Phase II of its Becoming Age-Friendly Program; inviting its fourteen communities to submit a letter of interest to participate as a Pilot Community. Letters were to include how an age friendly action plan would help the community with consideration to transportation, housing, social engagement, and economic development. Three communities were chosen by an age-friendly subcommittee. The Phase II pilot communities were the Towns of Bedford, Chester and Goffstown.

- Bedford (coming soon)
- Chester (coming soon)
- Goffstown (coming soon)
Due to constraints, SNHPC had to limit its Phase II pilot program to 3 communities and 10 businesses. Phase III of the program continued where Phase II left off, working with existing pilot communities to ensure their age-friendly efforts were successful. Because so much interest was expressed in Phase II of the program, SNHPC offered the same opportunity to additional communities and businesses in Phase III. Three additional pilot communities were chosen: The Towns of Derry, Hooksett and Weare. Click on the links below to learn about each of the Phase III Pilot Communities:
- Creating informational flyers and brochures about the transit services offered in select towns.
- Town-wide surveys to find out about current transit usage and needs.
- Shuttle bus meet-and-greets at town events and gatherings.
