Healthy Communities

Active Transportation Funding Resources

Working to improve conditions for walking, biking, using wheelchairs, and accessing transit often means developing a range of different types of programs, projects, and activities. Whether a municipality needs to educate about road safety, gear up for active modes, or plan, design, and build infrastructure, relevant funding sources are critical. This list has been compiled to help communities find grants to assist in the provision of safe, accessible and inviting networks of activity-friendly routes connecting everyday destinations.

2023 WalkWorks Funding Info Webinar

Walking, biking, using a wheelchair, and accessing transit are independent, reliable, and resilient transportation modes that are healthy for our minds, bodies, finances, communities, and the environment. We look forward to a time when everyone in Pennsylvania has a full range of transportation options available to them.

To that end, WalkWorks recently announced its seventh round of assistance to advance policy development related to active transportation. Grants will be offered to a limited number of municipalities and other governmental bodies to assist with the development of Active Transportation Plans. These plans are essential to our efforts to establish activity-friendly routes that connect people to everyday destinations, thereby expanding opportunities for physical activity and improving public health.
