The Corvallis Benton County Economic Development Office, in partnership with Pacific Power and the Oregon Clean Fuels Program, will distribute rebates of up to $1,200 for low-income individuals to purchase electric bicycles from local businesses.
The funding is part of a $60,000 grant awarded to the City of Corvallis through the Pacific Power Oregon Electric Mobility Grant program.
At a minimum, eligible individuals must be at least 18-years of age, reside in Benton County, be a Pacific Power customer, and earn 80% of area median income or below, based on family size and income.
Participating bike shops include Bike N Hike, Corvallis Cyclery, Corvallis Electric Bicycles and Peak Sports Bike Shop. Total rebate amounts vary depending on a number of factors. If selected as a rebate recipient, personal, low-interest loans may be available.

This program is part of an effort to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and expand mobility options and opportunities for community members.For those with questions, contact the Economic Development Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-248-0795.
