2019 Safe Routes to Parks Activating Communities Program

The Safe Routes to Parks Activating Communities program is now accepting applications for awards for eleven grantee communities in 2019. The Safe Routes to Parks Activating Communities program provides tailored technical assistance for eleven communities to develop Safe Routes to Parks action plans and awards $12,500 to each community to begin implementation of those plans.

From February through September 2019, the Safe Routes to School National Partnership will provide training, individualized consultation and technical assistance, peer community learning exchanges, an in-person workshop in their community, and grants of $12,500 each to develop and begin to implement Safe Routes to Parks action plans. At the end of the grant period, awardees will have a customized action plan to improve safe, equitable local park access that includes ideas for how to fund and sustain their efforts and will have implemented at least one action from the plan.
