Funding for walking programs available

America Walks is excited to extend another round of community change micro grants to individuals and communities interested in improving the public sphere for walking or otherwise helping to make walking more commonplace.  

This program awards up to $1,500 to fund or help to catalyze smaller-scale, low-cost projects and programs that increase the prevalence of walking, expand the diversity of people and organizations working to advance walkability, and help to make walking safer, easier, and more fun for all community members. Advocates must be diligent in making sure that every community member has access to the many benefits of walking and walkability, and it is our hope that these funds can help with that. 

Now in its third year, these grants to-date have provided catalytic assistance with innovative projects across the country, from maps that help encourage residents to explore their neighborhoods on foot to murals that help to enliven the pedestrian realm to targeted advertising that has helped to get the word out about existing walking programs. We're excited to see what you come up with!

This program is possible with support from partners of the Every Body Walk! Collaborative, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and other generous sponsors.
