Decision

 

Forth Valley and Lomond Local Action Group (FVL LAG) is delighted to announce the opening of their new Community Led Local Development Fund, which is the successor to the previous LEADER programme.  This funding has been provided by the Scottish Government through their Rural Communities Team.

Grants of up to £30k are available for projects which build capacity or enable a larger community led project in the rural area to take place.  Projects must take place by the end of March 2025.

Projects will also need to meet one of 5 priorities:

  1. Investing in Sustainable Economic Actions
  2. Creating Resilient and Smart Communities
  3. Preparing Climate Actions and Responding to the Climate Emergency
  4. Fostering Partnership Working
  5. Addressing Inequalities and Social Inclusion

 

Detailed guidance is available HERE 

Please note that the Youth Local Action Group will soon be launching a Youth Impact Fund with their own criteria and application process.  If your project supports young people you may wish to wait for this new fund.
