Grant Description
Grants of up to $2,000 to Indiana nonprofit organizations and programs, community groups, and schools in eligible regions to promote the use of bicycles. Funding is intended to promote safety, cyclist rights, and public awareness and understanding, and to increase the use of bicycles in Bloomington.

Goals of the grant program are to:

  1. Promote and encourage bicycling for recreation, competition, travel, and transportation
  2. Train and educate the community about bicycles and bicycling
  3. Promote better public understanding and respect for the rights of bicyclists and the observance of traffic regulations by bicyclists and drivers
  4. Promote bicycle safety

In awarding grants, the BBC Grant Committee will be guided by the following priorities established in the BBC By-laws:

  • To promote and encourage bicycling
  • To train and educate BBC members and the Bloomington community about bicycles and bicycling
  • To advise, support, and assist community groups in furtherance of the uses of bicycles for recreation, competition, travel, and transportation
  • To assert, safeguard, and advocate the rights of all bicyclists and to seek better public understanding and respect for existing rights and greater cooperation with the public authorities in the observance of traffic regulations by all users
  • To secure public cooperation for periodic major bicycling events promoted under the club's auspices; and to urge the construction on public lands of facilities for the use of recreational and competitive bicyclists.
