HomeSummit: How to apply for a Grant

How to apply for a Grant


Various organizations will provide funding for bike projects. As an example, this year a local charity foundation provided funding for persons to become graduates of the "League Cycling Instructor" class, which teaches them how to conduct Bike Skills classes for youth and adults. Pictured below are the 2018 LCI graduates. This funding ( $17,000 ) was made available because a bike club member applied for a grant. 




There is another organization that distributes Federal Transportation funds for new bike trails and other cycling improvements. Some of the bike trails that you ride today came about because a cycling enthusiast applied for these funds.

 

If you have an idea for a way to improve cycling in Oklahoma, attend this session to learn about how you can get your idea funded and implemented.
