Grant fund to help social tenants access ebikes

Social housing providers in Scotland can apply for funding to help tenants access the benefits of ebikes.

The fund is focused on supporting the adoption of ebikes and ecargo bikes as an alternative to car journeys, allowing communities across Scotland to access the benefits of ebikes in an affordable way. Category A (up to £25,000) and Category B (up to £200,000) funding is available. Since the initiative began, over 600 ebikes have been funded.

The deadline for the next round of funding is fast approaching.
