People and Communities Fund reopens

 

The Scottish Government has announced that the People and Communities Fund, which promotes and supports community-led regeneration initiatives across Scotland, will be accepting new applications for 2015/16 later this week. 

£9.4 million will be invested in community anchor organisations that deliver local regeneration activity and promote change in the most disadvantaged communities.  The fund aims to support a wide range of initiatives including improving financial capability, reducing the number of workless households, increasing the range of services delivered from local facilities, increasing the number of people taking up volunteering opportunities and healthy eating initiatives.

The deadline for receipt of applications is Friday 31 October 2014. When the fund re-opens later this week, eligible community anchor organisations can apply to the People and Communities Fund by visiting www.scotland.gov.uk/pcf. See the full Scottish Government news story here.
