Community Transport grant round 2 UPDATE
Published: 07 December 2018
We have had requests for an extension to the deadline for applications for Round 2 of the Community Transport Grant scheme. As we do not want to discourage community groups who may not be ready to apply by the current deadline of December 14th, we have agreed to extend the deadline until the end of February. Instead of needing to have your applications in by December 14th 2018, we will accept applications up to 28th February 2019.
We have also had some requests from community organisations who would like to apply for funding for their schemes, but will be running their schemes without the direct involvement of their town or parish councils. It is not our intention to exclude such organisations from applying for funding for schemes which are supported by the community and so we will accept applications from community groups who are not working directly with parishes to set up and run their CT schemes, so long as they have their parish or town council support. Please ensure that if you are a community group applying for the grant, you have liaised with your parish or town council to ensure they are supportive of your scheme, even if they cannot be directly involved with running it.
