The Aspiring Communities Fund has re-opened for applications. The fund is part of the £29 million of funding available under the Fairer Scotland Action Plan and will support projects that promote innovative community-led initiatives.
A total of £18.9 million is available. The Fund will help community groups and third sector organisations in the most deprived communities to develop and deliver long-term solutions that address local priorities and needs. The aim of this funding is to strengthen and empower communities, increase levels of economic activity, stimulate inclusive growth, local service provision and inclusion.
The closing date for applications is the 7th April 2017.
There will be a series of information events around the country to enable those interested in this fund to learn more about it from Scottish Government officials and network with other groups interested in the fund. For further information, please click on the link below.
