Active Living Policy Resources and Support

How can we help you with the effort in your community?

We all want and deserve to live in safe, healthy communities. People who live in neighborhoods where it is easier and safer to walk around are more active and have reduced risk of heart disease and diabetes. That is why the American Heart Association enthusiastically supports community-led efforts to pass policies that promote active living.

From investments in bicycle and pedestrian safety projects, to comprehensive Complete Streets policies, policy change can create more livable and safe neighborhoods for everyone to walk, bike, roll and use transit. How can we help you with the effort in your community?
