Application for 2018 Community Change Grants
America Walks, partners of the Every Body Walk! Collaborative, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Juliet Ashby Hillman Foundation, Lyft, WalkBoston, and other generous sponsors, are excited to announce another round of our popular Community Change Grant program. This program will award grantees $1,500.00 in community stipends for projects related to creating healthy, active, and engaged places to live, work, and play.

America Walks appreciates the never-ending and passionate work being done on a daily basis to create places where all community members have safe, accessible, equitable, and enjoyable places to walk and be physically active. Advocates and community members are critical to creating opportunities for all members to see the benefits to individual health and wellness, community interaction, economic vitality, and environmental sustainability that come when walking and walkability is supported by local efforts. 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 will increase walking and benefits of walkability in communities, work to grow the walking movement by engaging people and organizations new to the efforts, and take steps towards creating a culture of inclusive health. Projects should be able to demonstrate how they will create healthy, active, and engaged communities that support walking as transportation, health, and recreation.

Awardees will be notified in December 2018. Funds must be used in the 2019 calendar year.

Please contact Heidi Simon at hsimon@americawalks.org with questions.

Applications are due through submission of this form by November 2nd by 5pm Eastern.
