The Smarter Choices, Smarter Places (SCSP) Open Fund aims to encourage people to change their behaviours to walk or cycle as part of their everyday short journeys.
The fund, supported by Transport Scotland and administered by Paths for All, also encourages people to use sustainable travel choices, including buses, trams, trains and car share clubs for longer journeys.
The Open Fund is available to support public, third and community sector organisations that want to change people’s everyday travel behaviour, and Improvement Districts teams are listed as a specific type of organisation that can apply. The fund aims to help cut Scotland’s carbon emissions and improve our air quality. It will also help reverse the trend towards sedentary lifestyles and will tackle health inequalities.
Grants available are between £5000 and £50,000 and need to be match funded.
