Funding

During the project, we will regularly update these pages with funding information. The updates will include:

  • The Mode Shift Revenue Support scheme (MSRS)
  • The Waterborne Freight Grant scheme (WFG)
  • Marco Polo - final projects running to 2017
  • Information about Horizon 2020 and Connecting Europe Facility.

If, for one or more reasons, you are not eligible for funding under the LCFD project, there are other sources of funding in the UK that support modal transfer.

We will keep you informed on this web site of any further opportunities that arise through this, or any successor funding stream.
