Community Grants Scheme Archive
This Grants Scheme was started under the Moray Firth LIFE Project and was designed to help in a very practical way to take forward integrated coastal zone management at the local, community level and to encourage involvement by all sectors of the community.
The Scheme was aimed at local, not for profit groups such as community associations, youth groups, heritage and interest groups. Projects had to relate to the management, interpretation, enjoyment or improvement of the Moray Firth and its natural environment, be of clear benefit to the local area and contribute to the local quality of life.
In the 10 years that the Scheme ran (funded through Scottish Natural Heritage and other key partners), £102,000 was paid out in “seed corn” grants to 125 different community-led projects, enabling work valued at over £1million for the benefit of Moray Firth communities. See the table below for more information on the projects that were funded.
