Closed Opportunities

America Walks and the Every Body Walk! Collaborative Micro Grants. 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 walkability can help to bridge community divides and overcome existing disparities.

  • Total Funding Amount: Up to $1,500
  • Application Deadline: November 18, 2016, by 5pm Eastern
  • For More information: Please contact Heidi Simon at with questions.
