Walk with Ease funding available

The Osteoarthritis Action Alliance’s announces a request for applications for mini-grants to implement the Walk with Ease program. OAAA is conducting this mini-grant initiative to support expanded dissemination and delivery of the evidence-based, cost effective, and arthritis-appropriate Walk With Ease (WWE) programs. Over the next five years, we will extend WWE by reaching a minimum of 25 states that will embed the delivery of the programs and develop models for sustainability and ongoing funding.

This year, OAAA anticipates awarding up to 12 grants for up to $5,000 each, with a project period of up to one year. Funds may be used for instructor training fees, purchase of workbooks, printing of marketing materials, pedometers and administrative costs. Grantees in the 2017 cycle are NOT eligible.

Key deadlines:
  • Email of Intent due: August 15, 2017 at 11:59 PM ET (REQUIRED)
  • Applications due: October 16, 2017 at 11:59 PM ET. This year applications will be completed online.
