Grants available for up to £10,000 for community cycling projects
Applications for Cycling Scotland’s Cycle Friendly & Sustainable Communities Fund are now open. Grants of up to £10,000 are available to community-led projects aiming to increase the number of trips made by bicycle.
The Cycle Friendly & Sustainable Communities Fund follows on from the hugely successful Cycle Friendly Communities Fund, which has distributed more that £200,000 to communities across Scotland since 2008.
Projects that can demonstrate a shift to trips by bike and a reduction in carbon emissions are encouraged to apply for the funding. Full details, including application form, can be found at www.cyclefriendlycommunities.co.uk
The deadline for applications is the 20th November 2011. Applicants are encouraged to discuss their proposal ahead of submission – contact Christopher Johnson on 0141 229 5353.
