Grant Opportunity: People For Bikes Community Grants

PeopleForBikes announced their Spring 2015 grant round awards which ranged from $800 to $10,000 over the summer. These grants support bicycle infrastructure and advocacy initiatives in communities across the country. Read about some of the cool projects they are funding here.

Information on the application process is available here, and full grant guidelines here.

Who Can Apply:

“PeopleForBikes accepts grant applications from non-profit 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. PeopleForBikes only funds projects in the United States. Requests must support a specific project or program; we do not grant funds for general operating costs.”

Some examples of projects that they fund include infrastructure projects: bike paths, lanes, trails, and bridges, mountain bike facilities, bike parks and pump tracks, BMX facilities, bike racks, bike parking, bike storage and advocacy projects: programs that transform city streets and initiatives designed to increase ridership or the investment in bicycle infrastructure.

This is a great program and if you are interested in a bicycle related grant make sure to research this opportunity to see if you project may be a potential match for funding.
