The Department for Transport announced its selection of recipients for Access Fund and related grants on 26 January. The full outcomes can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/access-fund-funding-decisions-2017-to-2020
Congratulations to those who were successful. For those who were unsuccessful this time, Act TravelWise has resources available from the DfT on economic appraisal of active travel projects. These are available to members and may help improve your proposals for the next opportunity. They are equally useful for LEP funding opportunities.
Act TravelWise would also like to play a role in e.g. fostering communication and co-ordination at the regional level among project managers of Access Fund projects, and with training for those new to running this type of project. A special three-year discounted membership arrangement has been set up for Access Fund recipients who are not already Act TravelWise members.
