Wanted: Local, elected champions for Complete Streets
Due: July 15
Applications are open for the second round of our Active People, Healthy NationSM Champions Institute, an opportunity for local elected officials to gain the knowledge needed to effectively advocate for and support safer and more Complete Streets. Building on this year’s inaugural class, this second cohort will receive comprehensive training to help them become champions in their communities to promote activity-friendly routes to everyday destinations.
Smart Growth America (SGA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity are now accepting applications for the Active People, Healthy NationSM Champions Institute, the second round of our initiative for elected officials focused on Complete Streets and healthy communities. The Champions Institute has a track record of preparing mayors, city council people, tribal representatives, and other local elected-officials to become champions for promoting activity-friendly routes to everyday destinations, as part of the Active People, Healthy NationSM Initiative.
