A new deadline has been set for local authorities to submit their applications for the Department for Transport’s eCargo Bike Grand Fund, delivered by Energy Saving Trust. Local authorities will now have until 27 March 2020 to prepare their application for a bid of up to £200,000 in funding, to purchase ecargo bikes in their local area.
The Department for Transport has made £2 million funding available for the acquisition of ecargo bikes. Of this funding, a pot of £1,200,000 is available for local authorities to purchase ecargo bikes. The money can be used to cover up to 100% of the cost of ecargo bikes for local businesses, as well as fund ecargo bikes for use within local authority fleets.
