PeopleForBikes is a national movement to make riding better for everyone. By collaborating with millions of individual riders, businesses, community leaders, and elected officials, the organization is uniting people to create a powerful, united voice for cycling and its benefits.
The PeopleForBikes Community Grant Program supports bicycle infrastructure projects and targeted advocacy initiatives that make it easier and safer for people of all ages and abilities to ride. To that end, grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded to support bicycle infrastructure projects such as 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, and bike storage. Grant requests in which PeopleForBikes funding would amount to 50 percent or more of the project budget will not be considered.
To be eligible, applicants must be a nonprofit organization with a focus on bicycling, active transportation, or community development; city or county agencies or departments; or state or federal agencies working locally. PeopleForBikes only funds projects in the United States.
PeopleForBikes will begin accepting Letters of Intent on June 12, 2017. LOIs must be received no later than July 21, 2017. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by October 13, 2017.
