Eligibility for grants

The grant application window is now open to support the replacement or retrofit of non-compliant vehicles to clean air zone standards and to assist with the ongoing running costs of electric vehicles.

Grants will be available to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), Sole Traders/self-employed, education establishments and charities registered within the Bradford Metropolitan District.

Grants will not apply to businesses with more than 250 staff (other SME criteria may also apply).

Bradford District residents can now also apply for a grant to upgrade non-compliant vans, motor caravans or minibuses.

The funding is available to all Bradford residents, even if you have an exemption, to upgrade vehicles to meet the Clean Air Zone (CAZ) standards. Find out more on the residents grants page.
