Community Change Grants

Community Change Grants

The Community Change Grant program supports the growing network of advocates, organizations, and agencies working to advance walkability. Grants are awarded to innovative, engaging, and inclusive programs and projects that create change and opportunity for walking and movement at the community level. 

Applications for grants open in the fall and are awarded for the full calendar year following. The number of grants awarded varies each year, depending on available funds.
