  • The Scottish Government - Investing in Communities Fund

    Created: 01/06/2022, Updated: 06/06/2022
    News/Events Category: Funding and Finance

    The Investing in Communities Fund (ICF) aims to empower communities enabling them to tackle poverty, inequality and disadvantage on their own terms, in turn supporting inclusive growth.

    Funding priorities are focused at disadvantaged, rural and fragile communities across Scotland addressing the following areas:

    • tackling poverty and inequality, including child poverty
    • developing and sustaining place based approaches
    • community-led regeneration
    • ensuring a just transition to net zero

    The fund supports the revenue costs associated with community consultations, feasibility work, and the design and/or delivery of local community-identified and community-led projects and services that will address local challenges, priorities and needs.

    This is a significant opportunity for funding to support communities, up to £350k including up to £20k capital, over three years.
