CRW GRANTS PROGRAM

CRW GRANTS COMMITTEE

CRW allocates a portion of its annual budget for financial grants to promote the benefits of cycling.  Although it does not intend to limit the purposes and scope of grants, it is principally interested in programs and events that support bicycle usage, advocacy, safety, infrastructure development, and skill development.
 
A range of cycling-related organizations in New England, including Bikes Not Bombs, CYCLE Kids, LivableStreets Alliance and Bike Newton have been the recipients of CRW’s grants in the past.  For example, the LivableStreets Alliance of Boston received a grant for $4,000 to help promote three of its programs for the Emerald Green bike rides in partnership with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, the annual 10-in-1 Street Talk to promote cycling and related infrastructure, and its annual Tour de Streets for guided family rides through Boston and Cambridge. 
 
Although there are no established guidelines for the grants amounts, most grants have been in the range of $1,000 to $5,000.
 
If members know of cycling organizations that may be interested to apply for CRW grants, please have them contact Stanley Kay, Chairman of the Grants Committee (stankaylaw@comcast.net), for further details and an application form.
