The Network Action Grant Fund, funded by Transport Scotland and delivered by Sustrans Scotland, seeks to empower communities in implementing improvements which make journeys on the National Cycle Network more attractive and enjoyable.


Grant funding is available for projects which benefit people or wildlife across National Cycle Network routes in Scotland, with community groups able to apply for grants of between £100 and £750. Examples of costs which can be covered with a Network Action grant award include litter-picking equipment, tools, seeds, bird and bat boxes, habitat management training, wildlife surveying equipment and training to lead walks or rides on the Network.


Community groups throughout Scotland who would like to benefit from Network Action grant funding of up to £750 are encouraged to submit an online expression of interest form through the Sustrans website, where more details and guidelines for applications are also available.


The application deadline for the current round of funding is 17th May 2019.
