National Shared Use Task Force

The National Shared Use Task Force is composed of a broad array of shared use or joint use experts and practitioners from around the country who aim to elevate the critical issues of increasing access to safe places to play and activity in this country. The Safe Routes to School National Partnership is playing a key leadership role with Voices for Healthy Kids, a collaborative partnership between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and American Heart Association, which seeks to reverse childhood obesity by 2015 through proven research and advocacy strategies. As part of our work on Voices for Healthy Kids: Active Places, we are focusing on advancing shared (or joint) use agreements in underserved communities to create more opportunities for physical activity.
