Grant Application Guidelines

The CIBA Foundation prefers to make grants to organizations that will improve bicycling using the purposes listed on our Grants page as a guideline for funding.

  • Grants are generally for (but not limited to) $500 to $5,000.

  • Grants are primarily given to organizations whose projects and programs benefit the residents of Indiana.

  • Grant proposals for community police bike programs may be accepted for:

    • Start-up police bike programs.

    • Requests must include a dollar-for-dollar match against funds raised from other local community sources.

    • Requests for the cost of bicycles, not parts, accessories or other program-related costs.
