Community Bike Challenge
Grant Program for 2017

The Jeff Roth Cycling Foundation is awarding 6 grants, up to $1000 each, statewide in conjunction with its 2017 Community Bike Club Challenge Program. Local bicycle clubs, community bicycle programs, and other not for profit and nonprofit organizations are encouraged to submit proposals for projects that promote bicycling as a safe and healthy form of recreation and transportation. Projects with potential for achieving community wide impact like encouragement of new cyclists of all age groups, safe cycling programs, promotion of cycling as family recreation, facilitating bicycle maintenance in underserved populations, education of law enforcement and judicial agencies on current bicycle-pedestrian legislation, etc. will receive greatest consideration for funding. The Jeff Roth Cycling Foundation only funds projects, programs, and organizations in the State of Tennessee. All grant requests must support a specific project or program. The Jeff Roth Cycling Foundation does not grant funds for organizational operating expenses like salary and overhead.

Qualifying Organizations: Eligibility is restricted to duly constituted bicycle clubs and community organizations resident in the State of Tennessee. Each club or organization must have elected officers, an executive board, or board of directors, charter and bylaws, organizational bank account, and Federal Tax ID number. Nonprofit 501(c) 3 status is desirable but not required.

Questions about the program, letters of intent, and completed applications can be mailed or sent electronically.
