The Community Cycling Center has just announced their annual Bicyclist Safety Mini-Grant Program. These grants (up to $5,000) are available for projects that, “promote the safety of bicyclists in Oregon.”

Last year, these grants helped fund the Share the Road Mural, a Shift helmet giveaway, and the popular Get Lit program.

The grants are available statewide and are made possible by funding from ODOT’s Transportation Safety Division.

Applications must be postmarked by Friday, January 5, 2007.

For more information visit the CCC website or contact Caitlin Scholl, Mini-Grants Coordinator at Caitlin [at] CommunityCyclingCenter [dot] org or (503) 546-8864.

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive. That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. If you see an inconsiderate or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Thank you — Jonathan and Michael

    In the spirit of taking every post to this blog and turning it into a brakeless fixie issue, maybe someone should apply for a grant to outfit fixies with front caliper brakes – or to buy the riders a whole lot of wooden sticks . . . ;-)

    But, seriously, this grant program is a grand idea and I am thrilled to see it continue.
