COVID-19 Business & Continuity Fund for Scotland’s Coach Operators

The Scotland Coach Operators COVID-19 Business Support and Continuity Fund has been established to provide financial support for Scottish based businesses in the coach operators sector critical to Scotland’s tourism economy.

The scheme will support these businesses, which incur significant costs for vehicles which cannot operate while restrictions on travel are still in place, and help them prepare for recommencing operations when coronavirus restrictions are lifted.

The total budget for the Fund is £10 million. A range of awards will be made, depending on the number of Euro V and Euro VI grade Coaches declared, up to a maximum of £150,000 per company, limited to one application.

The exact amount awarded to each applicant will be determined by the eligibility criteria and supporting information provided.

Scottish based businesses in the coach operators sector may apply.

Applications are now open until Tuesday 23 February 2021 (17:00 GMT).
