The City of Tacoma is offering businesses grants of up to $500 to encourage and promote cycling by customers, employees, and business owners within Tacoma’s 15 business districts while increasing cycling visibility.
The grant opportunity falls on the heels of a “Bicycles Mean Business” workshop that shared with Tacoma business districts the strong connection between bicycling and shopping local. Some of the bicycle-friendly business ideas shared at the event included bicycle date night specials, shared merchant delivery bicycles, personalized safety information coasters/collateral, hotel guest bicycles, and banners welcoming cyclists.
The application and more information are available online at cityoftacoma.org. The deadline to apply is April 4, 2014.
