Safe Routes to Parks Grant

Children and adults in the United States are not getting enough physical activity, and our health and wellbeing is suffering as a result. But communities are working on many strategies to help – making it easier and safer to walk and bicycle, expanding access to parks, and more. One important place for collaboration and advocacy is around making sure that people can safely walk and bicycle to parks – an approach known as safe routes to parks. The Safe Routes to Parks Action Program is currently accepting applications for awards for ten grantee communities in 2018. An additional ten awards will be made in 2019. As part of the awards, funding and technical assistance will be provided to support the development of action plans and implementation steps to improve safe and equitable park access.
