Bloomberg Initiative for Cycling Infrastructure offers cities grants, mentorship and knowledge sharing

NEWS IN BRIEF: The Bloomberg Initiative for Cycling Infrastructure is offering cities across the world to apply for grants, mentorship and knowledge sharing.

...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this, IrishCycle.com's reader-funded journalism won't survive. With 676k views so-far this year, it's not just "avid cyclists" that this website reaches. But the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. This large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, but IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today.

The winning cities will receive grants of $400k USD to $1M USD for ambitious cycling infrastructure projects; technical assistance from the Global Designing Cities Initiative; training for city leaders on data collection, resident engagement and other industry best practices; and connecting cities with a global network of peers.

The deadline to apply is February 3, 2023 and details can be found at bloombergcities.jhu.edu.
