For a limited time, we’re giving income-eligible* District residents $700 toward the purchase of a new bike, e-bike, bike repair, bike accessories, or e-bike conversion kit.  Applicants can apply in person at one of goDCgo’s popup events. 

*Recipients household income is capped at 200% of the federal poverty level (FPL) or $29,160 for a single, non-elderly resident.
