Through our fund, we support projects across our network that address an area of social need and benefit local communities.
How it works
£2.25m is available until the end of our franchise in 2019, split by £750k each year.
An independent group, made up of members of our Advisory Board and customers, choose which schemes should be nominated. We encourage bids to show an element of match funding.
Once a final list has been agreed, we send it to the Department for Transport, who make the final decision and grant approval.
How to apply
Applications will open on 1 July and close on 31 August. The Year 3 programme will run from April 2018 – March 2019.
