Please read the following information carefully.

Before you complete an application, please be sure you have read the Grant Guidelines and that your proposal falls under one of the project categories that is eligible for funding.

Application Process

In an effort to green our grants process, we have moved to an online grant application system.

The PeopleForBikes (PFB) Community Grant application has two parts:

  1. Letter of Interest: Interested applicants should submit an online letter of interest (LOI) through the PFB website. LOIs will include basic information about the applying organization and contact person, as well as an overview of the project proposed for funding.
  2. Full Application: PFB will request a full project application from a short list of qualified applicants. Invited organizations will receive access to the online application.

We do not accept emailed, mailed or faxed applications. All applicants must utilize our online grant application system.
