PeopleForBikes Invites LOIs for Community Grant Program

The PeopleForBikes Community Grant Program provides funding in support of 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 in support of infrastructure and advocacy 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, bike repair stations, and bike storage; programs that transform city streets (e.g., ciclovías or open streets days); and campaigns to increase the investment in bicycle infrastructure.

Funded activities may include 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.

The online application will open on June 14, with Letters of Interest due July 23. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application by October 15, 2021.

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.

See the PeopleForBikes website for complete program guidelines, application instructions, and examples of previously funded projects.

Deadline: July 23, 2021 (Letters of Interest)
