The Plugged-in Households Grant Fund (PiHHs Grant Fund) is an opportunity for not-for-profit housing associations and co-operatives in Scotland to apply for funding to procure the services of a zero emission car club vehicle, for use by their tenants and the wider local community.

The workshops will be free and lunch and refreshments will be provided. Please register using the links below.
