Grants of up to $1,000 to Utah city and county agencies and departments, nonprofits, and community groups for pedestrian and bicycle projects. Funding is intended to promote public engagement with innovative ideas for transportation. Requests must be for a specific project.

Suitable projects will facilitate greater opportunities to engage the public with new active transportation ideas. For example, demonstration projects that show new opportunities to improve a street for increased bicycling and walking. These may include, but aren’t limited to:

- Protected or buffered bike lanes
- Improved sidewalks or crosswalks
- Pedestrian plazas
- Programs that transform city streets, such as Ciclovías, Open Streets, or Build a Better Block events.

The EPICC/Bike Utah Active Transportation Pilot Mini-Grant Committee will evaluate each application based on the following criteria:

- Project quality – Project scope, applicant’s ability to complete project successfully, resources available, alignment with community plans already in existence, thoughtfulness in location and purpose
- Benefits to the community – Population(s) reached, reason and methods for picking this project at this time, potential to increase ridership or walking
- Measurement and evaluation – Measurement methodology, applicant’s ability to conduct measurement
- Community support and partnerships – Reasons for project prioritization, capacity to make the project a success, community, business, and leadership engagement
- Fiscal Responsibility – There is a limited amount of funding to distribute. Projects and programs that can get more done with less will allow the funding source to fund more efforts
- Diversity – Geographic, project type, size of community
