New: Community Choices Fund announced for 2017/18
 
 
The Scottish Government has announced the £1.5 million fund will be open for applications until 21st July 2017.
First launched in 2016/17, the Community Choices Fund has supported participatory budgeting (PB) in Scotland.
 
For 2017/18, £1.5 million of the Community Choices Fund is available in two categories of £750,000 each:
 
  • Category one for Public Authorities which includes Local Authorities and other Public Bodies.
 
  • Category two for Community Organisations and Community Councils.
 
The fund aims to support PB activity which will significantly expand opportunities for more local people to make decisions on local spending priorities and contribute to local participatory democracy. 
 
Targeted particularly at work in deprived areas, the fund aims to build on the support provided by the Scottish Government for PB since 2014 as part of a broader agenda around democratic innovation and engaged citizenship.
 
The closing date for applications is midnight 21 July 2017.
