Active Living for All

We believe that safe, convenient places to be active make communities more vibrant, healthy and strong. 

To support the work of community organizations in creating those safe places for physical activity in Minnesota, the Center of Prevention has committed more than $1 million in Active Living for All funding for projects that will be ongoing through 2015 and 2016. This funding supports communities as they engage residents and improve places with more walking and biking for everyone.
