Application for 2016 Every Body Walk! Micro Grants
America Walks and the Every Body Walk! Collaborative are excited to announce the second year of Micro Grant Funding. This program will award grantees up to $1,500.00 for projects related to increasing walking and walkability.

Walkable communities lead to improved safety and health for community members of all backgrounds. They encourage broad involvement by all in the design and planning process, and are places where safe, accessible and delightful opportunities to be physically active are available to everyone. Neighbors in walkable communities are engaged with each other and schools, jobs and other valuable resources are within close proximity to where people live.

Most importantly, walking and walkabilty can help to bridge community divides and overcome existing disparities. To make and keep walking and walkability a priority in neighborhoods and communities so these benefits are available to all, a strong, connected group of local advocates and dedicated organizations are needed This grant program aims to support and grow this network of advocates and organizations.

Funded projects will increase walking and benefits of walkability in communities, work to develop the walking movement by growing the number and diversity of people and organizations pushing for more walkability, and they should make walking safe, easy, and enjoyable for all community members.

Please contact Heidi Simon at with questions.

Applications are due November 18th by 5pm Eastern.
