The Kentucky Department for Public Health, Healthy Communities Grant Program is seeking applications from local health departments and their partners to develop a community pedestrian plan that supports accessible and affordable active transportation options for all users.
What is a Pedestrian Plan?
A pedestrian plan is a detailed work plan that engages community members to identify priorities for creating safe, attractive walking and biking environment for people of all ages and abilities. A pedestrian plan adopted by local government will serve as official documentation of your community’s need and readiness for improvements to pedestrian facilities.
Listen to the December 10, 2014 webinar for an introductory training on developing a pedestrian plan and more information on mini-grant application. Link to webinar will be emailed at a later date.
Attend one of the trainings in Paducah on March 10, 2015 OR Morehead on March 19, 2015 with your community team. Training will include classroom instructions and a field trip to see an implemented pedestrian plan. Your team will leave the training with a draft survey and plan to complete a pedestrian plan by June 2015.
Apply for one of the ten (10) $500 mini grants. Funding may be used for development of the plan, travel costs or staff time. Funding cannot be used for construction or food for meeting purposes.
The webinar and March trainings are open to all communities not just to mini-grant recipients. All training participants are encouraged to follow the steps outlined in mini-grant application.
