Applications Open For Community Transport Fund

24th July 2012

The Highland Council is inviting applications from voluntary groups to operate community transport projects for the 2013 - 2014 financial year.

19 voluntary groups are coming to the end of their current funding agreements and they will now be able to apply for new revenue funding. The Council is also inviting applications from groups which may be looking to start up a new community transport project.

The aim of the revenue grant is to help fund transport measures that will be of particular help in improving the social inclusion of people in the Highland community. Proposed new projects will be required to demonstrate they are fulfilling a need not currently serviced by any other transport provision.

Examples of successful projects which have been previously funded include community car schemes, group travel schemes, minibus hire schemes and a community ferry.

Groups can apply for funding normally up to a maximum of 75% of the cost of the project and over a period of one year.

The total distributed from the Community Transport Fund in this financial year is 350,000.

Further details and the application form is available on The Highland Council Website www.highland.gov.uk/livinghere/communitiesandorganisations/voluntaryorganisations/fundingandassistance/grantfunds.htm
For further enquires please contact Ivor Souter Rural & Community Transport Officer on 01463 702602 or email public.transport@highland.gov.uk
