Thanks to the passage of SB22-193, CEO will continue the Can Do Colorado e-bike Pilot Program by implementing a full-scale version of the program. Grants are available to non-profit organizations, local governments, tribal governments, and other community-based organizations to create e-bike programs that give e-bikes to low- and moderate-income Coloradans.
The Grant Program provides funding for the development and implementation of e-bike deployment projects in communities across the state that will:
- Increase access to e-bikes for income-qualified individuals while maximizing air quality benefits and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions
- Close a gap rather than compete with established programs
- Represent the geographic diversity of Colorado communities
- Ensure viability beyond the term of this project
In the most recent grant round, CEO has funded eight projects in Colorado:
- E-Bike to Work Ownership Program; City of Grand Junction
- eBikeThere Garfield County, Clean Energy Economy for the Region (CLEER)
- Cortez 55+, Four Corners Office for Resource Efficiency (4CORE)
- E-Bike Match Program, Routt County Riders
- Fort Morgan E-Bike Access Program, City of Fort Morgan
- Choose Your Ride, Shift Your Ride, City of Fort Collins
- Earn-a-Bike, Community Cycles
- PikeRide For All, PikeRide
CEO is no longer accepting applications for the FY23 Grant Program. CEO anticipates an additional grant funding opportunity for this program in FY24, set to open in September or October.
