SANDAG is helping the San Diego region gear up for National Bike Month (May 2017) by offering $3,000 grants for programs or projects that encourage biking.

Local government agencies, community based and nonprofit organizations, colleges and universities, and business improvement districts, main street associations, or chambers of commerce are all eligible to apply for the grants.

The SANDAG iCommute program will award up to $30,000 in GO by BIKE Mini-Grants in this funding cycle.

Examples of eligible activities include: community rides, bike scavenger hunts, or guided bike tours; bike commuting, maintenance, and safety classes; “Bike to Business” promotions in a neighborhood business district; local “Bike to Work” or “Bike to Campus” events; campaigns or contests that promote bike riding; and public events or rides that open city streets to people on bikes. Projects that focus on bike education, building support for biking, and promoting biking as an everyday transportation solution will be prioritized.

Applications will be accepted through January 20, 2017 at 5 p.m. Funds will be awarded by February 17, 2017. Funded activities must take place between April 1 and June 15, 2017. Complete details on eligibility, reporting requirements, evaluation and selection criteria, timelines, and application procedures are available at www.icommutesd.com/events/bike-month

The grant program supports the agency’s ongoing effort to encourage people to GO by BIKE for everyday trips. The San Diego region has a network of 1,340 miles of bikeways.
