The Active Travel Innovation Grant is Now Open

For the period 2017-2020 the Isle of Wight Council has secured £1.35m of funding from the Department for Transports 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 here (website)  

A small section of this funding is being made available as Active Travel Innovation Grants. We are encouraging Businesses, Groups and Organisations to apply for up to £15,000 of revenue funding to deliver projects that help more people choose walking and cycling as a preferred travel method.


If you are interested in applying please read the Guidance notes (pdf, 62kb, 3pages) and Frequently asked questions (pdf, 75kb, 3pages) before starting your application.
