Apply for Funding

Our two travel grant funds support organisations and groups across the North East to implement sustainable travel initiatives. These aim to increase travel by public transport, cycling and walking, promote low emission vehicles and reducing the need to travel.

Please note that the window for new applications to the Nestrans Sustainable Travel Grant and Community Sustainable Travel Grants will re-open soon. You can still submit an expression of interest via the forms below but these will not be considered by the grant panel until the application window has reopened.


Sustainable Travel Grant Scheme

Organisations across the north east of Scotland can apply for up to £10,000 in matched funding to support sustainable transport initiatives.

Any organisation based in Aberdeen or Aberdeenshire can apply for funding towards measures such as improved pedestrian access, secure cycle parking or even a shuttle bus.

The scheme has been running since 2004 and has supported a number of organisations across the area. Read about some of the recent project we've supported.

Community Sustainable Travel Grant Scheme

And how does this differ from the Sustainable Travel Grant?

The original Sustainable Travel Grant Scheme has been running for a number of years. However, smaller community groups often had problems providing the match funding required under the conditions of the scheme.

This community version of the Sustainable Travel Grant is for any constituted community group, registered charity or social enterprise based in Aberdeen or Aberdeenshire.

Funding of up to £5,000 is available and groups are expected to demonstrate commitment by a contribution (or contribution in kind such as volunteer hours or resources) to the project.

The Community Sustainable Travel Grant Scheme launched in 2021. Read how the fund has already supported projects across the north east.
