The Indiana State Department of Health is providing funding for Indiana communities to prepare a community-wide bicycle and pedestrian master plan. Applications for the funding are due on January 30, 2015. A minimum of two plans will be funded in this annual round. Successful applicants will begin their plans no earlier than July 2015, with funded plans required to be completed by the end of June 2016.
The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) Division of Nutrition and Physical Activity (DNPA) invests in partnerships and activities that work towards improving the health of all Indiana residents. The adoption of bicycle and pedestrian master plans by Indiana communities is seen as an effective way to invest in changes to policy and the built environment that support healthy community outcomes.
A digital copy of the Request for Applications is available on the Indiana Healthy Weight Initiative website and from the DNPA. For more information and questions, contact: Pete Fritz at 317.234.6808 or pefritz (at) isdh.in.gov.
