The Plan

The National Physical Activity Plan Alliance is a not-for-profit organization that is committed to insuring the long term success of the National Physical Activity Plan (NPAP). The Alliance is a coalition of national organizations that have come together to insure that efforts to promote physical activity in the American population will be guided by a comprehensive, evidence-based strategic plan. The Alliance is governed by a Board of Directors that is composed of representatives of organizational partners and at-large experts on physical activity and public health. The National Physical Activity Plan Alliance has established the following key objectives:

  • Support implementation of the NPAP’s strategies and tactics
  • Expand awareness of the NPAP among policy makers and key stakeholders
  • Evaluate the NPAP on an ongoing basis
  • Periodically revise the NPAP to insure its effective linkage to the current evidence base
