Important change to Fall 2019 Grant Cycle: As part of our 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 our next grant round. We will post our 2020 schedule of grant cycles in October 2019.

Improving communities, one bike project at a time.

The PeopleForBikes Community Grant Program provides funding for important projects that build momentum for bicycling in communities across the U.S. These projects include bike paths and rail trails, as well as mountain bike trails, bike parks, BMX facilities, and large-scale bicycle advocacy initiatives.

Since 1999, we have awarded 425 grants to non-profit organizations and local governments in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Our investments total more than $3.5 million and have leveraged nearly $775 million in public and private funding.

The PeopleForBikes Community Grant Program is funded by our partners in the bicycle industry. Thanks to the following participating members and their employees for making these awards possible:
