Opportunity for Virginia schools, school divisions, municipalities, nonprofits, and regional, and state agencies to improve bicycling and walking conditions in school areas. The grant is intended to increase the number of students walking and bicycling safely to school. Recipients receive a hands-on walking and bicycling infrastructure survey and written walkabout report coordinated by the Local Technical Assistance Coordinator serving their region.

The Walkabout is an excellent opportunity for community stakeholders to experience pedestrian and bicycle conditions, share perspectives, and build consensus around potential solutions. The Walkabout report will include descriptions and photos of the conditions observed during the Walkabout. Recommended infrastructure improvements may also be included in the report, if the applicant intends to apply for a specific funding opportunity.

The entities who may apply for funding include:

- Schools (public and private)
- School divisions
- Local governments (cities, counties, or towns)
- Regional and state agencies working on behalf of a school or schools
- Nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations working on behalf of a school or schools

Applications for Walkabout Mini-grants are accepted twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring. Applicants planning to use their Walkabout Report to support Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside grant applications for infrastructure projects are encouraged to apply for a spring 2017 Walkabout Mini-grant.
