Community Grant Programme extended to March 2013

Date: 14th December 2012

Previously known as the Community Chest programme, this popular small community grant programme has been extended to the end of March 2013.

The programme was so successful during 20018-12, that it helped over 1,100 community groups and organisations across all local authority areas in Scotland to sustain and improve their activities.

Aimed at Scotland's smaller community groups and voluntary organisations, the programme provides grants of up to £1,000 and free training to groups with an annual income under £25,000.

There is one remaining round for applications to the programme. Completed applications should be submitted by 14 January 2013.
