The Living Streets Alliance used results of AzPAPRN+ walk and talk focus groups to win funding from the RWJF Kaboom Grant to create a safe route to school in a Tucson Neighborhood. The AzPAPRN+ research also received a funding boost as a partner in a Center Grant funded to Portland State University from US Department of Transportation.

AzPAPRN+ is comprised of an interdisciplinary team of researchers and leaders committed to raising awareness of and developing strong evidence, policies and priorities about active living in rural communities through shared research and evaluation. This Working Group is a part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Physical Activity Policy Network Plus (PAPRN+). The AzPAPRN+ developed a sharing community engagement toolkit available for download.
