Important change to Fall 2019 Grant Cycle: As part of the Foundation's efforts to get more children and youth on bikes, this grant cycle is dedicated to supporting bike park and pump track projects only. If your project is for another type of bicycle infrastructure, such as a multi-use trail, bike path, mountain bike trail, protected bike lane or BMX facility, or for bike parking or storage, please wait and submit during the next grant round. The Foundation will post the 2020 schedule of grant cycles in October 2019.
PeopleForBikes focuses most grant funds on bicycle infrastructure projects such as:
- Bike paths, lanes, trails, and bridges
- Mountain bike facilities
- Bike parks and pump tracks
- BMX facilities
- End-of-trip facilities such as bike racks, bike parking, bike repair stations and bike storage
Some advocacy projects will be considered, such as:
- Programs that transform city streets, such as Ciclovías or Open Streets Days
- Campaigns to increase the investment in bicycle infrastructure
PeopleForBikes will fund engineering and design work, construction costs including materials, labor, and equipment rental, and reasonable volunteer support costs. For advocacy projects, staffing may be funded if it is directly related to accomplishing the goals of the initiative.
