Smaller-scale cycling infrastructure projects get a boost from BikeBC
Applications now open for the 2013-14 Cycling Infrastructure Partnerships Program (CIPP)
Part of BikeBC, a 50/50 cost-sharing program between the Province and local governments, the CIPP helps communities with smaller-scale cycling infrastructure projects, such as bike lanes and paths.
All British Columbia municipalities and regional districts are eligible to apply for up to $100,000 in CIPP funding.
The goal of the program is to promote transportation cycling (cycling to work, school, or errands) as a means of reducing traffic congestion and green house gas (GHG) emissions.
To be considered for funding, local governments must describe how the project benefits the community and contributes to increased physical activity and healthy living, as part of their municipality’s active community plans.
The deadline for applications is Jan. 10, 2014.
