On Wednesday, October 19, 2022, Governor Dan McKee created the Erika Niedowski Electric Bike Rebate Program in honor of Erika. This is a program that merges two of Erika’s loves, cycling and protecting the environment. In the release about the program, Governor McKee said:
“Erika was an inspiration to all who knew her. She was brilliant, talented, thoughtful, and her commitment to promoting clean energy solutions will positively impact Rhode Island for generations to come. We are honored to be able to name this new program in her memory.”
