PeopleForBikes aims to make bicycling better for everyone. By collaborating with millions of individual riders, businesses, community leaders, and elected officials, the organization is creating a powerful, united voice for cycling and its benefits. Since 1999, the organization has awarded more than three hundred and fifty grants totaling over $3 million to nonprofit organizations and local governments in all fifty states and the District of Columbia.
To advance its mission, PeopleForBikes is accepting Letters of Interest for its Community Grant Program. Through the annual program, grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded to important and influential projects that leverage federal funding to build momentum for bicycling in communities across the United States. Projects can include bike paths and rail trails, as well as mountain bike trails, bike parks, BMX facilities, and large-scale bicycle advocacy initiatives.
To be eligible, applicants must be a nonprofit organization with a focus on bicycling, active transportation, or community development; a city or county agency or department; or a state or federal agency working locally. PeopleForBikes only funds projects in the United States.
Letters of Interest must be received no later than January 18, 2019. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application by April 5, 2019.
PeopleForBikes will begin accepting LOIs on December 10.
