America Walks: Community Change GrantDeadline: November 8, 2019
The America Walks Community Change Grant program will award grantees community stipends for projects related to creating healthy, active, and engaged places to live, work, and play. 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 U.S. 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 must demonstrate that they will show increased physical activity and active transportation in a specific community, work to engage people and organizations new to the efforts of walking and walkability, and demonstrate a culture of inclusive health. Projects will create healthy, active, and engaged communities that support walking as transportation, health, and recreation.
Amount: Grants will be made in the form of $1,500 community stipends.
Eligibility: Nonprofit organizations; organizations working with a nonprofit organization; public offices or institutions; and schools or other education facilities.
