Many families aren’t as active as they would like to be because they lack safe places to walk, bike and play.

In fact, the U.S. is failing five of nine factors that reflect walking and walkable communities.

Latinos in particular face barriers to walk, which negatively impacts physical and mental health, as well as economic prosperity.

Are you interested in helping to make walking more commonplace for families in your community?

Micro Grants;

America Walks is hosting a round of micro grants for up to $1500 to fund or start smaller-scale, low-cost projects and programs.

The goal is to increase the prevalence of walking, expand the diversity of people and organizations working to advance walkability, and help to make walking safer, easier, and more fun for all community members.

Read about the projects and programs implemented by 2015 Grant Awardees and 2016 Grant Awardees to get inspired.
