PROJECTS seeking to transform towns and neighbourhoods are being invited to apply for a share of a £10m funding pot.
Match-funding of between £5,000 and £25,000 is being made available by the fund – created by the Scottish Government and being administered by Scotland’s Towns Partnership.
£2m is being made available from the fund – called ‘Scotland Loves Local’ – this financial year. The £10m fund is a multi-year commitment.
Says a Scottish Government (here), the funding “aims to bring new, suitable, creative projects and activity to towns and neighbourhoods – helping build local wealth and increase footfall and activity, while supporting local enterprise partnerships”.
It adds: “Eligible projects could include things like community shops, marketing and digital schemes, or enabling larger construction projects delivery.”
Applications close on October 1.
