Indiana County

WalkWorks Program

Program Overview:

In 2015, Indiana County was selected to participate in the WalkWorks program.  WalkWorks┬áis a collaboration between the Indiana County Office of Planning & Development, Pennsylvania Department of Health, and the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health to increase opportunities for physical activity across Indiana County.  Through this grant funded program, planners work with local communities to identify community-based walking routes and form sustainable walking groups that will enhance and expand active transportation with the ultimate goal of improving the health of County residents.
