Community Choices Fund 2017/18 Open For Applications

The Scottish Government has announced that the 2017/18 Community Choices Fund is open for applications.
First launched in 2016/17, the Community Choices Fund is a new fund to support participatory budgeting (PB) in Scotland.  PB is recognised internationally as a way for local people to have a direct say in how public funds can be used to address local needs. 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.
£1.5 million of the Community Choices Fund is available for Community Organisations and Community Councils. The fund’s aim is 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. The closing date for applications is midnight 21 July 2017.
