Plan France Ruralités & Green Fund

What is the Green Fund?

The Green Fund, at the heart of the France Ruralités Plan, provides for an investment of 90 million euros between 2024 and 2026. This financial scheme encourages local, sustainable mobility projects, such as :

  • Requiring or having a mobility strategy.
  • Including the provision of services or infrastructure.
  • Enabling feeder services to flow-generating hubs or multimodal interchange hubs (PEM).

The good news is that DRT is eligible for the Green Fund as a sustainable mobility project.

Is your area affected?

The territories covered by this plan include :

  • Metropolitan France (rural EPCIs, those classified as intermediate density and those in the Île-de-France region).
  • Eligible overseas departments/regions (DROM).

For a list of eligible territories, please turn to page 11 of this document.

Who can apply for funding?

The France Ruralités plan identifies eligible project sponsors. These include :

  • Mobility organizing authorities (AOM).
  • Organizations with delegated authority.

Note that even in the absence of competence, the elected representatives of a sparsely populated area can propose a mobility project, provided it is supported by a regional AOM, as a "second-tier" delegation.

How do you prepare your application?

To apply for a Green Fund grant, you must complete an online form containing :

  • A note presenting your mobility project.
  • AOM approval.
  • A provisional financing plan and other documents relating to the project owner (e.g. bank details).

You can call on France Mobilités, CEREMA andADEME to help you prepare your application.
