PeopleForBikes: Community Grant ProgramDeadline: July 26, 2019
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. As part of an effort to get more children and youth on bikes, the current grant cycle is dedicated to supporting bike park and pump track projects.
PeopleForBikes will fund engineering and design work; construction costs including materials, labor, and equipment rental; and reasonable volunteer support costs.
Eligibility: Applications are accepted from nonprofit organizations with a focus on bicycling, active transportation, or community development; from city or county agencies or departments; and from state or federal agencies working locally.
Amount: Requests of up to $10,000 are accepted. A specific percentage match is not required but PeopleForBikes does look at leverage and funding partnerships carefully. Requests cannot be in the amount of 50% or more of the project budget.
