Bikes Belong is accepting grant applications from organizations and agencies within the United States for projects that “will put more people on bicycles more often.” Fundable projects include paved bike paths, lanes, and rail-trails as well as mountain bike trails, bike parks, BMX facilities, and large-scale bicycle advocacy initiatives.
This year, Bikes Belong will only accept “Community Partnership Grant Applications.” These proposals must come from a partnership that is minimally comprised of one government agency or office, one non-profit organization, and one business.
Bikes Belong accepts requests for funding of up to $10,000 for facility and advocacy projects. We do not require a specific percentage match, but we do look at leverage and funding partnerships very carefully. Bikes Belong will not consider grant requests in which their funding would amount to 50 percent or more of the project budget.
Grant applications are due May 24, 2013. For more information, see the Bikes Belong Grants Program Brochure.
