About the Project
The Be ActiveWV Grant Program is a community-based project that aims to improve the health of West Virginians by supporting projects that increase access to physical activity. The project will focus on improving the health of communities through increasing opportunities for physical activity for children throughout the school day and beyond, increasing or improving pedestrian and bike infrastructure, and creating opportunities for physical activity referrals in healthcare settings.
The Be ActiveWV Grant Program is a partnership between West Virginia College of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences, and West Virginia Division of Health Promotion and Chronic Disease, Bureau of Public Health. The project partners recognize that there are communities and organizations all over the state who are making strides to improve the health of West Virginia. With this unique opportunity, the collaboration will engage and support communities who are working to increase access to physical activity throughout the state.
