Bikes Belong Offers Grants to Promote Bicycling
Deadline: November 27, 2006

Bikes Belong (<a href=""></a>), a national coalition of bicycle suppliers and retailers, administers a grants program designed "to put more people on bicycles more often."

The grants program accepts and funds applications for three types of projects: facilities; education; and advocacy.

All proposals must address the goals of the grants program strategic plan — encourage ridership growth, promote bicycling, build political support, leverage funding, and support bicycle advocacy; address the project objectives of the facility, education, or advocacy funding categories; and propose a specific program or project that is measurable. Bikes Belong will not fund general operating costs.

The Bikes Belong Coalition welcomes grant applications from organizations and agencies within the United States that are committed to putting more people on bicycles more often. For the education and facility categories, Bikes Belong will accept applications from nonprofit organizations and public agencies and departments at the national, state, regional, and local levels. For the advocacy category, Bikes Belong will only fund organizations whose mission is expressly related to bicycle advocacy.

Bikes Belong accepts requests for grants of up to $10,000 each.

Bikes Belong reviews applications on a quarterly cycle. The next deadline is November 27, 2006.
