As a shortage of 6.5 million homes confronts the nation, the population of the U.S. skews increasingly older. The lack of affordable housing, compounded with the growing population of Americans over age 65, means that older adults who desire to age in place are finding it much more difficult to stay in their communities.
Merit transforms large-scale government programs through our technology and expert teams. In practice, we tackle the seemingly impossible, like learning loss among American youth and growing climate concerns. Our agility empowers our partners to launch grant programs in months instead of years. When disasters strike, we swiftly support efficient response and recovery. While our programs vary greatly, our consistent secret ingredient is our talented team. We’re immensely thrilled Fortune recognizes this, awarding us FOUR Great Place to Work awards.
