USA Cycling has announced this year’s launch of the Event Organizer Advancement Fund, a grant program designed to support cycling events across the United States.
The fund is open to all USA Cycling-sanctioned events. USA Cycling will provide funding to initiatives that have the potential to impact the cycling community through innovation and participant growth. In its inaugural year, the program will offer a total of $25,000 in grants.
The program is designed to foster growth, creativity, and engagement within the cycling community while strengthening the relationship between USA Cycling and event organizers. The fund includes 25 grant awards worth $1,000 each and offers support for grassroots and national-level events in all cycling disciplines. It presents opportunities for event organizers to introduce creative elements to events and a platform to contribute to the growth of bicycle racing in the United States.
Applications are open from February 12 through March 31, 2024. Event organizers are invited to apply and outline their strategies for advancing their events and the sport of cycling.
