Join the New York State Department of Health Arthritis Program and the New York State YMCA Foundation for an Informational Webinar on Wednesday, July 10, 2019, at 11:00 am to learn more about our most recent grant opportunity to build capacity for the Arthritis Foundation’s Walk With Ease Program.

Program Background

Walk With Ease is a six-week, evidence-based program appropriate for adults with, or without, arthritis. Studies show that Walk With Ease is proven to reduce the pain and discomfort of arthritis; increase balance, strength, and walking; build confidence in one’s ability to be physically active; and improve one’s overall health. Walk with Ease can be offered as self-directed or in a community group-based setting. For the purposes of this grant, Walk With Ease must be delivered in a group-based setting.

Request for Applications (RFA)

A formal Request for Applications (RFA) is scheduled to be released on Monday, July 8, 2019. Up to six (6) grants of $3,000 will be awarded to YMCA Associations to launch one Walk With Ease site in their community.
