eCargo Bike Grant Fund

Location notice

Please note that this page contains information and links most relevant for people living in England.

Due to the high volume of applications we are currently processing, the eCargo Bike Grant Fund 2021/22 application portal is temporarily closed. Applicants can still access the portal to check their application status and new users can still sign up to register interest. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.

£400,000 has been made available by the Department for Transport in 2021/22 for the purchase of ecargo bikes, to support businesses switching to a sustainable transport solution.

  • Funding covers up to 40% of the total cost of an ecargo bike, up to a maximum of £2,500 for two-wheel models and £4,500 for three-wheel models.
  • Applications will be capped at five bikes per organisation. Larger applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • Applications may include more than one organisation. In these joint ‘high-street’ applications, a lead applicant will be responsible for submitting the application.

For more information please see the Eligibility Criteria and Code of Practice.

The application deadline is 14 December 2021. The claim deadline is 14 February 2022. eCargo bikes do not need to have been delivered for the grant to be paid.
