This year our grant scheme will support projects that deliver benefits towards the 13 outcomes in our National Park Partnership Plan and your local Community Action Plan. Priority will be given to projects that deliver towards multiple outcomes.
As 2018 is the Scottish Government’s Year of Young People, we’re also offering specific funding for projects that deliver a range of benefits for, or work in partnership with, young people.
