Matching Grants Awarded in the Areas of Youth Cycling, Trail Projects, and Youth Rider Development.

The Outride Fund mission is to empower local communities to launch a variety of youth cycling initiatives nationwide. Just announced are the latest round of matching grants for the fall 2019 and spring 2020 cycle.

This past Fall, we issued nineteen matching grants to organizations in 13 states in the areas of Trails, Youth Cycling Education, and Youth Rider Development committing $111,000 in matching funds with the expectation of paying out a total of $230,000 if funding goals are met.

For Spring 2020, twenty-four matching grants have awarded committing over $149,000 to grass-roots partners. Between both the Outride Fund and our Riding for Focus grant program, we expect to give over $1.4 million in grants during FY 20.

Congratulations to all the Outride Fund Awardees.
