The Sustainable Transport Innovation Grant is Now OPEN  

We are now receiving applications up until Sunday 3rd March 2019.  

For the period 2017-2020 the Isle of Wight Council has secured £1.35m of funding from the Department for Transport's (DfT) Access Fund. The intention of this funding is to improve access to jobs, skills, education and training by boosting the number of people walking and cycling. The successful application can be viewed online here (PDF,1.57MB,32 pages).

A small section of this funding is being made available as Sustainable Transport Innovation Grants. We are encouraging businesses, groups and organisations to apply for up to £10,000 of revenue funding to deliver projects that help more people choose sustainable transport as their preferred travel method.

Before applying for the grant fund we advise every applicant to review the guidance notes (PDF,240KB,3pages). We have also produced a list of FAQ's (PDF,384KB,3pages) which will help you complete the application form.
