Beginning in 2003 in an effort to better serve our membership USA Cycling (USAC) began cultivating relationships with established Local Associations (PCA) and working with local groups to create new associations.

USAC recognizes that the PCA is in the best position to know what works for their area and by supporting and reinvesting monies in those associations we hope to grow the sport at all levels. The PCA is made up of passionate members and volunteers who are the hands on representatives that drive grassroots road, track and cyclocross racing across the United States. USA Cycling reinvests membership funds into each Local Association so that money from members in each area is used to support racing programs where they live and race.

The program allows the PCA to decide where to reinvest their financial allocation from USAC. They establish priorities to best meet the needs of their members.
