The PeopleForBikes Community Grant Program provides funding in support of important projects that build momentum for bicycling in communities across the United States, including bike paths, lanes, trails, and bridges, mountain bike facilities, bike parks and pump tracks, BMX facilities, and end-of-trip facilities such as bike racks, bike parking, bike repair stations, and bike storage. The organization also funds some advocacy projects, such as Ciclovías or Open Streets Days and campaigns to increase the investment in bicycle infrastructure.
Through the program, grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded in support of engineering and design work, construction costs (including materials, labor, and equipment rental), and reasonable volunteer support costs. In the case of advocacy projects, the organization will fund staffing that is directly related to accomplishing the goals of the initiative.
Letters of Intent are due January 17, 2020. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full project proposal by April 3, 2020.
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. Projects must be based in the United States.
