America Walks has seen firsthand that the passion, innovation and hard work of advocates and local organizations to advance safe, equitable, accessible, and enjoyable places to walk and move are what create the foundation for walkable communities across the US. This grant program will work to provide support to the growing network of advocates, organizations, and agencies using innovative, engaging, and inclusive programs and projects to create change at the community level.
Funded projects should:
Increase physical activity and active transportation in a specific community
Work to engage people and organizations new to the efforts of walking and walkability
Demonstrate a culture of inclusive health
Create and support healthy, active, and engaged communities
