Capital City Village (CCV) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation, founded by residents in Austin, TX and serving members with Austin addresses. CCV’s goal is to help its members live life to the fullest in their own homes and communities as they grow older. CCV has established and is continuing to develop a network of volunteers, social and cultural activities, and service providers that offer a full range of services to members to enable them to age in place.

Individuals and households become members of CCV by applying and qualifying for an applicable level of membership based on income. The nonprofit corporation is managed by its Board of Directors; subscribing members are not voting members of the corporation. Membership begins the day you pay your fee, and will continue for twelve consecutive months. Payment plans are accepted and arranged with Capital City Village staff.

Members subscribe to and receive the services CCV provides. Capital City Village acts on behalf of its membership to identify the activities and services the Board has determined to be most needed by and most beneficial to its members. CCV relies on volunteers and also identifies strategic partners who deliver such activities and services in the geographic area served at convenient times and places.

Most of the activities of CCV will be available at no additional cost. As a CCV member, you will contract directly with and be billed for services by third-party service providers; these service providers will offer in some cases discounts to CCV members.

CCV is committed to ensuring member satisfaction with the activities and services provided. CCV, however, will not under any circumstance assume any direct or indirect responsibility or liability in connection with services contracted for by members with third-party providers identified by CCV.

Member Recruitment and Acceptance/Declination Policy

All terms and policies are subject to change.
