Thanks to the passage of SB22-193, CEO will continue the Can Do Colorado eBike 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 eBike programs that give eBikes to low- and moderate-income Coloradans.
CEO is soliciting applications for the Community Access to Electric Bicycles Grant Program. The Grant Program provides funding for the development and implementation of eBike deployment projects in communities across the state. Collectively, projects proposed under this RFA shall:
- Increase access to eBikes 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
