The Chemung County Age-Friendly Business and Organization Designation initiative encourages and recognizes local businesses and not-for-profit organizations who are striving to provide easy-to-navigate, respectful, and effective experiences and services to our community.  Age-Friendly designation reflects support for the vision of Chemung County as a community that encourages active and healthy living. Achievement of Age-Friendly Designation is recognized by a certificate, decals for marketing purposes, and promotion on the Age-Friendly Chemung County website and Facebook page.
