Bike Rack Grant Program


Better bike parking

There are lots of bike racks around town, but there's not a lot of good bike racks. The Bicycle Committee has been working to fix that.

GRAnts up to $300

Limited funding is available to encourage private businesses and nonprofit institutions to install bike racks. The program will reimburse 50% of the cost of new racks, with a grant of up to $300 for racks and up to $50 for installation costs. Grant applications are accepted year-round on a rolling, first come, first-served basis. Purchase of the racks is to be a private transaction between the business and supplier/installer.

Rack Requirements:

  • Racks must be clearly visible from a public way
  • The racks must be available for use by the general public
  • The racks must be inverted-U or post-and-ring design.

Grant Process:

  1. Identify the location and type of rack you’d like to install. Review the Choosing Bike Racks page for detailed suggestions.
  2. Fill out and submit the 1-page Bike Rack Grant Application along with a spec sheet on the rack and a sketch of the rack's planned location.
  3. A committee member will work with you to determine the appropriate type and location of racks that will qualify for the grant program.
  4. Purchase and install your racks.
  5. A member of the Bicycle Committee will complete an on-site inspection to verify installation.
  6. Fill out the Bike Rack Reimbursement form and submit it along with your invoices, confirmation of delivery, and a photo of the installed rack. The committee will need to vote to approve the final reimbursement and submit it to Town Hall.
