Requirements:

  • Projects must be related to cycling.  Funds may go towards a variety of initiative types (events, conferences, projects, etc.), but the initiative must align with and advance the goals of the Bike Co-op as outlined in our constitution.
  • Applicants may be any member of the community, and the initiative may occur on or off campus.
  • We encourage applicants to incorporate or engage with the Bike Co-op as a partner in their proposals.

Procedure:

  • Proposals may be submitted through the online application form above (permanent link: http://bikecoop.ca/resources/cycling-initiative-grants/app)
  • The application will be reviewed at a Board meeting and the decision to approve or deny funding will be made by the Board.
  • A representative from the Bike Co-op will contact the applicant to inform them of the decision, and if necessary invite them to an upcoming Board Meeting to discuss any details.
  • The project must be completed within the fiscal year identified upon approval.

Rules:

  • Applicants may apply for up to $200.00 per project.  Applicants are welcome to seek additional funding from other organizations for their project, but the Bike Co-op will only grant up to $200.00 per project per year.
  • Applications must be submitted at least 3 weeks in advance of the event/project start.
  • All receipts for purchases must be kept and submitted to the Treasurer of the AMS Bike Co-op no later than 30 days after the project or event has completed.
