Building Bicycle Helmet Equity

The Chronic Disease Prevention and Control Division at the Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC) is seeking community-based organizations, who support the wellness of Boston residents by promoting physical activity, bicycling, and injury prevention, to partner with BPHC and distribute free bicycle helmets to Boston residents, especially for those that are low-income.

The "Bicycle Helmet Equity" project will provide bicycle helmets free of charge and make them more accessible to Community Based Organizations (CBO).

CBOs must be able to receive shipments during March and April 2023 from the supply vendor and store helmets appropriately. CBOs will distribute helmets for free to families in their communities who need them. The ideal organization would have the capacity to store a large number of helmets and distribute as we receive requests.
