We now offer a Preparatory Project Grant to assist with the initial planning, negotiations and outline costing work required to apply for full Scottish Timber Transport Scheme support.

How do I apply for a Preparatory Project Grant?

If you would like to apply for Preparatory Project Grant funding, you should first contact the Project Officer at the relevant Regional Timber Transport Group. A letter of in-principle support from the Regional Timber Transport Group should be submitted with your application form.

Projects which receive preparatory funding are expected to result in submission of a full Scottish Timber Transport Scheme application. However, please note that an award of Preparatory Project funding does not guarantee an award of full STTS funding.
