DEI Grants

NEMBA is looking to support programs that focus on diversity, equity and inclusion in cycling


Are you a non-profit, or an organized group that offers innovative access, programming, or initiatives to promote inclusion of all types in cycling in New England?
NEMBA is looking to financially support programs that focus on diversity, equity and inclusion in cycling. While programs that feature mountain biking would be ideal, we feel that any program supporting cycling is beneficial to the sport as a whole. These grants can be awarded to NEMBA chapters, land managers, non-profit organizations and initiatives created by local groups within New England.
Grant requests can be from $100 to $1000 and will be awarded twice a year. Groups can submit one grant request per application cycle.
