NEBRA Officials Support Programs

NEBRA Officials Support Program Overview and Guidelines

The New England Bicycle Racing Association’s mission is to advance, develop and support the bike racing community and the sport of cycling in New England. We are dedicated to fostering an environment that provides lifelong opportunities in the sport for all participants, promoters and supporters.


As part of NEBRA’s mission we offer a robust program of grant options. These are available to NEBRA members (clubs or standalone race directors) who attend the annual NEBRA Promoters Summit and to USA Cycling licensed officials from the New England region.
