Sustainable Travel Grant for Business 

In 2018/19, businesses can apply for grants of up to £5000 to implement changes which encourage staff and visitors to travel by active and sustainable travel modes.  The grant is available to businesses that are in the Access Fund area or to businesses that have at least 50% of their workforce living in these areas.   The designated areas, within the green border or blue border, can be viewed on this map of Leicester business engagement area.

The business is expected to match fund the grant, although this can be in kind, by providing staff time or a venue for a promotional event, for example.  Applications of more than one grant are accepted, as long as the total is not more than £5000.  Here you can find the application form for a sustainable travel grant for businesses.
