CrossCountry has launched its Customer and Communities Investment Fund (CCIF), inviting applications that benefit the communities along its route.
The £500k fund is designed to support projects with a tangible social benefit, whether that be outreach schemes helping to open rail travel to more communities or full-scale building refurbishment projects.
Successful bids must demonstrate a link to the railway, address an area of social need or provide a visible community benefit.
If you have an idea no matter how big or small, we want to hear from you. Each proposal will be treated on its own merits and the value it provides to the community.
Tom Joyner, CrossCountry’s Managing Director said:
“We’re delighted to launch the fund as part of our commitment to improve our passengers’ journeys and provide a benefit to the communities we serve. The Customer and Community Investment Fund will enable us to support projects on a wider scale than ever before.
I like to encourage local organisations and our customers from across our network to get in touch with their ideas.”
Applications open Monday 2 August 2021 and close Friday 10 September 2021
