The fund is being administered by the Community Transport Association and has £2million available for this round with priority being given to support services who provide a role in education outside of traditional “classroom learning” and those serving rural areas. This funding round will follow a two phase structure: Phase 1 – will identify organisations who meet the required eligibility criteria (350 organisations were identified in the previous round); Phase 2 – this will cover the procurement of vehicles, taking account of the needs of the organisation and seeking the best value for money possible. Vehicles provided under this scheme can be used for voluntary services only and not used to compete for tendered contracts led by public sector bodies.
