Bring evidence-based physical activity programs to your agency. These programs are sure to get your community members, especially older adults, active and healthy. NRPA, with the support of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is offering local park and recreation agencies across the country, Instructor Training Grants for Physical Activity Programs. Three evidence-based physical activity programs, Walk With Ease, Active Living Every Day and Fit & Strong! are beneficial for people with or without chronic conditions, and are especially popular among older adults of all abilities.  Join us to learn more about this grant opportunity!
