Local Motion Grants

The primary goal of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Commission's Local-Motion Grant Program is to advance pedestrian and bicycle mobility in Bloomington. The program will provide direct support to initiatives that focus on cultural, day-to-day, or other locally based activities that also aim to strengthen our diverse and vibrant bicycling and walking culture.

The BPSC believes building a bicycle- and walk-friendly community is more than taking a "build it and they will come" approach. It is also important to complement this approach by encouraging and educating a platform on the virtues of active modes of transportation.

Program Guidelines

There is one grant cycle annually and requests are limited to one project application per cycle. Grant awards are capped at a maximum of $2,400 per project application. Existing or emerging non-profit organizations, locally-owned businesses, and neighborhood associations with new projects are encouraged to apply for the Local-Motion Grant Program. 


The 2023 application window is now open. Please read the guidelines first.
