Travel Grants - £2,000 Available

The Travel Grant Scheme is now open.

The Zero Emissions Network offers travel grants to businesses in Hackney, Islington and Tower Hamlets. Apply for up to £2,000 to promote walking and cycling and help staff travel sustainably. Previous grants have been used to purchase cargo bikes, electric vehicles, cycle parking, shower facilites and more. Hear from previous grant recipients here.

To apply, a business must be registered to the Zero Emissions Network and complete a travel survey. The survey must be circulated to colleagues as it collects data about current travel patterns and barriers to travel. The business must meet the minimum completion rate within 4 weeks of first registering an interest (as detailed below), and will then be sent a bespoke Action Plan and grant application form. Once applications are received, businesses will be notified with a decision within 2 weeks.

Travel Survey - Minimum Completion Rates

100% for < 10 staff

50% for < 25 staff

40% for 25 - 50 staff

All successful applicants will be required to provide evidence of grant spend and complete a 12 month follow up travel survey.
