CBBC Grant Program
The Central Bucks Bicycle Club (CBBC) was established in 1975 and is dedicated to the encouragement of all aspects of bicycling. The mission of the Club is to sponsor and support recreational cycling activities; to encourage bicycling as a leisure activity, as a beneficial form of exercise, as a method of transportation, and as a sport; and to promote equal road rights and safe bicycling practices.
Each year, a portion of the proceeds from CBBC's Covered Bridges Ride is set aside to fund our Grant Program.
CBBC has created the CBBC Grant Program as a vehicle to award financial grants to those organizations whose programs best align with the CBBC mission. Proposals are evaluated on the vision, goals and needs of the applying organization.
Full instructions are presented on the following application. Please download and apply now! The application deadline is October 15th of each year.
