COVID-19 Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Driver and Operator Support Fund 2021-22
Taxi and private hire drivers If you are a licensed taxi or private hire driver experiencing financial challenges as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, and who previously received a one-off grant of £1,500, you may now be eligible for a second grant payment.
This support is separate from any other funding you may have received from the Scottish or UK Government. For example, if you have applied to the Self-Employed Income Support Scheme, you may still be eligible.
Taxi operators If you are a taxi operator experiencing financial challenges as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, you may be eligible for a grant based on the number of vehicle licences you hold:
· owner/operators with one vehicle - a single award of £1,000 · owner/operators with 2 to 9 vehicles - a single award of £3,000 · owner/operators with 10 to 49 vehicles - a single award of £7,000 · owner/operators with 50 or more vehicles - a single award of £15,000
If you are eligible for a grant, your local authority will contact you directly.
