TransitCenter Offers Matching Funds for 2016 Micro Grants

TransitCenter is thrilled to partner with America Walks and the Every Body Walk! Collaborative to help bridge the often siloed worlds of walkability and transit advocacy. Our research has shown that hospitable walking environments and robust pedestrian networks are essential for making transit the mode of choice for all trips throughout the day. We are excited to work with America Walks and the Every Body Walk! Collaborative to support projects that improve pedestrian connections to transit, and build more integrated multimodal networks. Towards that goal, TransitCenter will award 1-1 matching funds to walkability projects selected as part of the Every Body Walk! Micro Grants that improve access to transit.

While this is a broad umbrella, organizations must explain how their project addresses the intersection of transit and walkability. To be eligible for matching funds, applicants must check the “improving access to transit” box in the application, and indicate in their project description specific stop locations or elements of the transit network that they seek to affect. Project budgets may be submitted at the $1500 level, awardees will receive assistance if needed on how to use the additional funding. Learn more and apply here!
