IMBA and its corporate partners offer a range of grants for chapters and affiliated organizations to support their trail building, advanced education, trail maintenance and other efforts. This summer, we are pleased to announce that $11,600 in cash ($2,000 more than last year) will be awarded through IMBA’s small grants program. Grantees are located in every region of the U.S.—from Florida to California to Wisconsin—demonstrating that strong mountain bike groups and great trail projects are present in all corners and landscapes of the country.
"Small grants are a great way to kick start local efforts and often are combined with community funding to drive a larger project like a bike park or new trail, " said Rich Cook, IMBA Development Director. "We appreciate that Fox, Osprey and Clif Bar understand this and have contributed to growing IMBA's small grants program."
