MWH Admin Team News, Resource

Application Deadline extended until 28th January 2022

Money for Moray (M4M) was awarded £150,000 from the Scottish Government’s Empowering Communities/Investing in Communities Fund (ICF).  Called “A Fairer Moray for All”, with main themes of Health and Wellbeing; Poverty; Growing a Diverse and Sustainable Economy, and Accessibility, applications were sought with a closing date of 5th November.

However, the Scottish Government has announced that, given the continuing challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, it has extended this ICF funding period.  Consequently Money for Moray is reopening the period for applications and new applications will be accepted up to a new closing date of 28 January 2022.

The target is projects which improve the lives of people, particularly vulnerable and young people, and tackle issues such as food insecurity, fuel poverty, transport difficulties, literacy and employability.

Application forms can be submitted on the M4M website moneyformoray.org which has more information.

On-line voting will be open to the public in April and May 2022 and Marketplace events to showcase the projects will take place in Moray West and East in April.  As this is a Participatory Budgeting project the outcome of the vote will determine which projects receive funding.
