Opportunity to Virginia nonprofits, schools, and government agencies to participate in a program to learn more about bicycling and walking infrastructure.

Walkabout Mini-grant 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 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.
