Cycle Friendly and Sustainable Community Fund opens for applications

communtiesCommunities can now apply for grants of up to £5,000 from Cycling Scotland’s Cycle Friendly and Sustainable Communities Fund to deliver local cycling projects.

The purpose of the Cycle Friendly and Sustainable Communities Fund (CFSCF) is to support groups to encourage cycling in their community and to deliver a sustainable cycling project.

This Transport Scotland funded grant scheme enables community groups to support and deliver projects with an overall aim to increase the number of local journeys by bike. Reducing single occupancy car use and increasing active travel options will result in reduced local transport related carbon emissions and increased health and wellbeing of the community.

Applications will be assessed on their individual merits and scored against the criteria below as well as the overall project plan.

  • Encourage more journeys by bike in your community
  • Increase opportunities for people to cycle in your community
  • Meet the needs of the community

Full details, including an application form and guidance notes, are available here.
