The PeopleForBikes Foundation, as part of the Better Bike Share Partnership, will make grants of $25,000 – $75,000 available to collaborations of non-profit community-based organizations, cities, and bike share operators to support the development and implementation of strategies to increase bike share use in underserved communities. Preference will be given to projects led by community-based organizations.
