Green Infrastructure Community Engagement Fund open for applications

The Green Infrastructure Community Engagement Fund opens today for project applications. The £0.5 million fund will be used to help deliver a minimum of 10 projects across Scotland that help urban communities engage with their local green infrastructure.
Projects must:
– benefit urban areas with populations of more than 10,000
– have eligible budgets between £50,000 – £120,000
– provide at least 60% match funding
– complete by 31 December 2018..
The deadline for applications is midnight on 17 April 2017.
Eligibility criteria and guidance on how to apply to the Green Infrastructure Community Engagement Fund is available on the Green Infrastructure Fund Website.  Projects that benefit areas in the 15% most deprived areas of Scotland will be given priority. Projects in areas that have received funding from the main Green Infrastructure Fund are not eligible to apply.
Open Q&A events for potential applicants will be held in Dundee, Inverness and Glasgow. The first event will be in Menzieshill Community Centre, Dundee, on 14 February from 1100 to 1300. Following the Q&A session there will be eight half-hour appointments with the Green infrastructure Team’s project officers for an initial discussion about projects.
The other two events will be held during the following two weeks. The times and venues for these will be posted on the website and emailed to contacts requesting a place.
Details of how to book a place at our Q&A events will be posted on the website during week commencing Monday 16 January 2017.
