Safe Routes to Parks Grant Funds Available
The JPB Foundation has provided a grant to the National Partnership to fund the Safe Routes to Parks Activating Communities program designed to increase safe and equitable access to parks.
The program will provide grant funds to local communities in addition to training, coaching and technical assistance to support the development of action plans to improve safe and equitable park access in a total of 20 diverse communities across the nation over the next two years. Nationally available resources will also be developed to advance the work and virtually support other communities seeking to implement the Safe Routes to Parks framework locally.
Applications just opened for year one and 10 communities will be selected to begin work this Spring.
