The primary purpose of the Active Transportation Program is to provide participants with essential skills in planning and implementing bicycle and walking transportation efforts in their communities. Participants will learn how to assess the level of readiness a community has for active transportation policies and projects, how to find resources and get people engaged in the work, and ultimately make communities safer and more accessible through better policies, design, and construction.

The secondary purpose of the program is to provide participants opportunities to connect with HEAL staff and New Hampshire experts to help them with specific active transportation issues in their communities. Another important purpose is to connect participants with each other to help build a support network for communities currently working on or interested in working on active transportation projects.

The following dates will be when Active Transportation sessions will be offered in 2014. The April 22 session is mandatory for Active Transportation Grant recipients; all others are encouraged to attend. Attendance at future sessions is strongly encouraged for all.
