Ullapool Community Trust (UCT) has received a grant of £8,000 from Highland and Island Enterprise. This money is available for groups and projects who need funding to help maintain/deliver projects and services etc. during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The funding will be allocated by the Community Benefit Fund Panel which represents the community, UCT, Loch Broom Renewables and the Community Council. Funding will be allocated on an ongoing basis. Payments of up to £1,200 are available but larger payments will be considered by the Panel. Funding must be spent by 30 September. Non-constituted groups and/or individuals may apply if they are sponsored by another non-profit group who can receive the grant on their behalf.
Applicants are advised to read the full guidelines before submitting their application. Application packs are available by post or email (details below) or visit the Benefit Fund page to download.
The panel is keen to distribute the funding to the community as soon as possible so please help spread the word to anyone who doesn’t use Facebook. Information about the fund will also appear in this week’s Ullapool News.
The fund is open now. Please submit your application by 1st August. Help for completing the forms is available from UCT.
