If you are a local new or existing community or voluntary group/ organisation based in Moray
– ∗even an informal group– you can apply for funding from £200 to £4000 to put your ideas into action. (Only one application per group).
All activities will have to happen in Moray and must benefit the local economy.
∗Informal Groups do not need to have a constitution or a bank account but will require the support of a constituted local group or organisation prepared to accept monies on your behalf.
To apply for the funding a fully completed application must be received before 5.00pm on Friday 3rd November 2017.
You must have the necessary permissions and/or consents in place prior to making an application.
Your Project must be able to be completed within 12 months of receiving the funding.
**Groups/ organisations who work solely within the towns of Elgin, Buckie, Keith, Lossiemouth or Forres are not eligible to apply.
However, if you are based in any of these towns but the project is outwith the town area you may apply for this funding.
If your idea meets the criteria, you will be required to make a short presentation at an event open to the public which will be held in early December 2017.
All those in attendance, Aged 14+, at the event will be eligible to vote on the applications.
