PA Awards $255,000 in Grants to Nine Communities to Improve Walking and Biking Networks

The Pennsylvania Department of Health announced $255,000 in grants through the WalkWorks program to assist nine different communities in developing Active Transportation Plans to increase physical activity by connecting local destinations with improved pedestrian, bicycle, and transit networks.

Supported by the DOH and the Pennsylvania Downtown Center, WalkWorks recipients will work over the next year with transportation and community planners to collect data, assess current conditions and aspirations, and incorporate public input to craft the Active Transportation Plans. The program benefits from a partnership with the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) and its Community Conservation Partnerships Program and Mini-Grant Program.
