Grant Program

Granting Opportunities to Local Organizations

In addition to our riders volunteering on build sites and advocating for affordable housing in communities throughout the summer, Bike & Build disburses proceeds from our summer trips to organizations across the United States.

Other Types of Grants

While the competitive grant program is the primary method through which Bike & Build donates the money it receives, we also empower our riders and hosts to support specific organizations directly.

Rider $250 Grants

All riders are able to designate one affordable housing organization of their choice to receive a $250 unrestricted grant.

Pre-Arranged Contributions

Bike & Build occasionally works with targeted affordable housing groups for various reasons, including longer or more in-depth build projects, among others. In these cases, a portion of our trips’ proceeds is reserved for these groups.

On the Road Donations

These contributions, typically $100, are made to local housing organizations as designated by the community centers, churches, schools and other organizations that host our trips.

2019 Applications will open in May!

The application period begins in April and closes in late May. Bike & Build must receive all applications by the date stated on the application; no exceptions.
