The Fund in Argyll and Bute
We have been allocated £285,284.40 to distribute amongst the third sector in Argyll & Bute by the end of March 2022.
We will support local, grassroot community activity that meets the overarching national ambitions for the fund and the local priority areas.
There are 2 types of grant, a small grant fund for bids £500 to £5,000, and a large grant fund for bids £5,001 to £50,000. Given the need to ensure access to funds across Argyll and Bute there will obviously be fewer larger grants. The performance monitoring and evaluation for larger grants will also be more stringent, however the general approach to this fund is to reduce the administrative burden on applicants and grantees as much as possible.
The grants are for time-bound activities and projects which need to begin prior to March 31, 2022 and will be intended to benefit those aged 16 plus.
We held an information session on Monday the 15th of November to give applicants the opportunity to view and understand the government guidance and help shape the local beneficiaries of the fund. To view the recording of the meeting, click here
