Community Project Transition Fund

Funding for community and third sector organisations to support behaviour change programmes to increase walking, wheeling and cycling in local communities.

Walking and active travel

Paths for All are inviting expressions of interest for our new Community Project Transition Fund. This grant fund is open to community and third sector organisations for projects that will deliver behaviour change away from single user car journeys towards walking, wheeling and cycling. 

The Community Project Transition Fund is a £2.1m grant fund, with a minimum award of £5,000 and a maximum of £100,000. This revenue funding is for projects that will contribute to the Transport Scotland Active Travel Framework Outcome to “Increase the number of people choosing walking, cycling and wheeling in Scotland” by delivering on outcomes:

  • More people choose to walk, wheel or cycle for short local journeys or
  • People develop more positive attitudes towards active travel options

Projects must align with the Transport Scotland People and Place programme priorities of:

  • Active Schools and Young People
  • Workplaces
  • Accessibility and inclusion
  • Capacity and Capability 

Although open for Expressions of Interest, grant awards cannot be made until Paths for All receives confirmation of funding from Transport Scotland. We expect that successful applications to the Community Project Transition Fund will be awarded between 1st April 2024 and 31st May 2024 with projects to be completed by 31st March 2025. 

To express interest in applying for funding please submit your information on Grants for All.

Paths for All are delivering this fund on behalf of Tactran and Scotland’s Regional Transport Partnerships with the support of Transport Scotland.
