Community Active Travel grants support communities to create, promote and maintain active travel routes.
The grant scheme is open to any constituted community group who have their own bank account. Community organisations and registered community charities such as community councils, development trusts and community woodland groups working in Scotland can all apply for the funding.
How do you apply for the grants?
Read the guidance notes and make sure that your project meets the criteria and that you can deliver your project within the timescales.
To get the application process started simply fill in the online Expression of Interest form (EOI) and tell them about your project.
They will check your Expression of Interest form and let you know if your project is suitable.
If your project is suitable, they will send you a link to an online application form to complete and submit.
To be eligible for the Community Active Travel grants, your project must demonstrate how it will make it easier for people to walk and cycle when making short everyday journeys such as to shops, school, work or to connect to public transport links.
You can use the funding to:
• Promote and signpost active travel routes;
• Improve and develop routes that will make it easier to walk and cycle when making short everyday journeys;
• Maintain active travel routes and ensuring that they are accessible.
