The Department for Regional Development has announced the next round of the Rural Transport Fund Voucher Scheme for your area.
This scheme is aimed at constituted rural community groups and organisations wishing to transport 17 or more passengers. The scheme provides a £100 voucher towards the cost of a specified trip for successful applicants.
Supported by the Rural Transport Fund, the Voucher Scheme works in partnership with private transport operators.
Application packs are now available for those non-profit making community groups who are planning on travelling during April, May and June 2013and the closing date to return the completed applications is 28 February 2013.
There is a limit to the number of vouchers available in each area. To assist those community organisations that help or support the most vulnerable in society, there is a selection process.
