LCTT Challenge Fund Round 2 open for applications

Transport Scotland’s Low Carbon Travel and Transport Challenge Fund is now open for Round 2 applications. Energy Saving Trust administers the fund on behalf of Transport Scotland.

Public, community and third sector organisations can apply for funding under the European Regional Development Fund 2014-2020 Programme to facilitate the delivery of active travel and low carbon transport hubs.

Following the first round of funding awards, there remains £2.25 million of uncommitted ERDF funds to invest in projects from the Highlands and Islands (H&I) area and £2.15 million of ERDF funds for projects from the Lowlands and Uplands (LUPS) area of Scotland. Transport Scotland is also making available a limited amount of funding - up to £1 million - to support a proportion of the funding requirements of projects.

Transport Scotland has made the following changes to the criteria for the second funding call:

• Total eligible project costs are set at a minimum of £250,000 and a maximum of £2 million.
• Transport Scotland’s match funding support enables organisations to bid for up to 80% (in H&I) or 70% (in LUPS) of the total project costs.
• Path-only applications will be considered provided they can demonstrate that the path works are of sufficient scale and strategic importance, supporting functional trips.
• Projects must be completed by December 2019.

Please note the deadline for all applications is Friday 19 January 2018, 4pm.
