The Planning Walkable Places program is a non-construction grant program using funds that are "left over" from planned construction projects. Formally approved in May 2017, the program focuses on community goals that can be achieved through increasing walkability.
These goals include, but are not limited to, improving health, safety, and connectivity; improving community vitality and 'sense of place'; enhancing tourism, attracting young talent, improving the mobility of seniors and children; increasing the enjoyment and safety of community events; and providing a distinctive place that promotes community identity and serves as a landmark.

To apply for a project, each authorized representative of a WAMPO member communities should familiarize themselves with the below Program, Visual Guide and submit a completed application, to the attention of Jason O'Brien at email@example.com
