The Investing in Communities Fund (ICF) is currently anticipated to open for new applications in spring next year.

The Investing in Communities Fund aims to support community anchor organisations based in the places they serve by delivering activity across the following four areas for action in our most disadvantaged and fragile communities across Scotland:

  • tackling poverty and inequality;
  • sustaining place-based approaches;
  • community-led regeneration;
  • ensuring a just transition to net zero.

The team will be holding webinar sessions for interested stakeholders and prospective applicants to provide an overview of the fund’s aims, eligibility criteria and the application process prior to its anticipated opening for applications next calendar year.  The webinars will also include time for Q&A. This approach is also intended to provide time for interested organisations to develop quality collaborative place-based proposals in conjunction with local partner organisations.

The webinars will last one hour and are planned for 1030-1130 on Tuesday 30 November 2021, and 1400-1500 on Wednesday 8 December 2021.
