Victoria (Tori) Decea


The National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) is offering a learning collaborative for rural park and recreation agencies to explore and establish partnerships in communities to leverage assets and overcome the challenges faced when offering evidence-based programs and services in rural areas. Agencies will meet virtually over a period of 4 months between February-May, 2020 to learn and create a network of support.

The program is designed for parks and recreation agencies that offer evidence-based physical activity interventions that are designed to positively impact chronic disease management, increase physical activity engagement, help seniors age in place, and improve quality of life. Instructors must provide services to underserved populations, including populations of color, those living in/near the poverty level, those with limited access to healthcare and human services, rural and other remote geographic populations, and populations highly affected by chronic conditions.


Applicants must:

  • Be a rural, local park and recreation agency
  • Have previously received an NRPA Instructor Training Grant
  • Have intentions to offer an evidence-based program (Walk With Ease, Active Living Every Day, Fit & Strong!) between Spring and Fall 2020
Geographic coverage
Amount of funding

5 agencies will receive a $1,000 stipend.
