Denver Community Active Living Coalition (CALC) in partnership with the Department of Transportation & Infrastructure (DOTI) and Denver Streets Partnership (DSP) invite you to get creative about living an active life in your neighborhood! We are offering Micro-Grants of up to $500 for individuals and $1500 for businesses and organizations in support of walkability, bikeability, or access to safe and healthy spaces for physical activity. Applications open on April 19, 2024 and will be reviewed on a rolling basis throughout 2024 or until funds are fully spent.

We fund projects that encourage active living, active transportation, mobility safety, or use of the built environment. We encourage organizations, residents, and businesses to think creatively about your community's needs and existing resources to create a project that makes it safer, easier, and/or more fun to be active in your Denver neighborhood.
