Foundation Scotland – Crown Estate Community Capacity Grants Programme
The next round of Crown Estate Scotland’s Community Capacity grants programme will launch on Thursday 5th August.
Crown Estate Scotland invests in property, natural resources and people to generate lasting value for Scotland.
The Fund comprises two grant programmes, an Environment Grants Programme for tenants on the Scottish Crown Estate and the Community Capacity Grants Programme. Foundation Scotland are administering the Community Capacity Grants Programme (see below), more information on the Environment Grants Programme can be found on the Crown Estates Scotland website.
The purpose of the Community Capacity Grants Programme is to provide early stage financial support for community enterprise projects that contribute to local regeneration and sustainable development and, ultimately, help create great places to live, work and visit. In recognition of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) being held in Glasgow in 2021, all applications are required to demonstrate how net zero considerations will be incorporated into their project.
Awards of between £20,000 to £50,000 for a one-year period will be made through this Programme. The fund is open to all communities that are situated in the following areas:
• up to 5 miles from coastal and estuarine foreshore in Scotland; or
• up to 5 miles from the Scottish Crown Estate’s four rural estates (Glenlivet, Fochabers, Whitehills and Applegirth)
