The Western Isles Development Trust is launching the Small Projects Fund 2021, says Comhairle nan Eilean Siar.
This follows the successful uptake of the Small Grants Scheme in 2020 and the Youth Summer Activities Fund in 2021 where a total of £56,000 was allocated to community bodies across the Western Isles.
WIDT is now launching the Small Projects Fund for 2021 to distribute a further £40,000 from 1 September 2021.
Applications are invited from community groups for a maximum of £2,000 in grant funding.
To be eligible the application must meet at least one of the WIDT’s objectives and show benefit to the community.
Once the fund has been expended it will close until 1 September 2022. There is no restriction on successful applicants of previous funds applying.
Full details of the fund and WIDT’s Main Fund and application forms can be found at the website. A list of beneficiaries of all WIDT’s funds is also available.
