Denver CALC works with neighborhoods and residents to make it easier and safer for everyone to access biking, walking and transit in Denver. We do this by collecting and sharing data with communities and decision makers, working with Coalition partners on events and programs, and providing education and training for community leaders on health and the built environment.

CALC Scholarship Program:
Denver Community Active Living Coalition provides scholarships for Denver community members engaged in Denver CALC to attend local conferences and trainings related to CALC work. Denver CALC will pay up to 100% of the full conference registration cost, but will not cover any expenses related to the event (travel, meals, etc.)
In return, attendees are expected to submit a brief write-up of the event and a brief evaluation. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, but please allow at least 2 weeks before the registration deadline to process your application. Apply here.
The PhotoVoices project served to document resident experiences about what it is like to live, work, learn, play, commute, and more in Denver neighborhoods. The project is officially closed; however, you can still submit photos if you like here:
