NEMBA grants provide financial support to enable mountain bikers and trail stewardship partners to perform trail projects on public land where mountain biking is allowed. Preference is given to projects that build or improve trails, but all projects will be considered.
These grants can be awarded to NEMBA chapters, land managers and non-profit organizations. These grants are awarded twice a year, once in the fall and then again in the spring.
For the 2021 spring grant period NEMBA has awarded 7 Grants.
