Grants - Cost of Living Support - Community Led Initiatives Fund
This grant fund is now closed as all funding (£450,000) has been fully committed.
A full report on how the money has been allocated is available in Item 9 of the 23 February 2023 Communities and Place Committee.
To help alleviate the impacts that the rising costs of living are having for Highland residents, The Highland Council agreed on 22 September 2022 to create a £450,000 Cost of Living Support Fund. Applications are now invited from community groups to implement local initiatives that will help ease the cost of living impacts within their communities.
The aim of this cost of living grant fund is to enable community groups to provide local activities/provision that provide support to individuals and families during the winter months. This fund will support local initiatives to keep people warm, provide food and to enable people to heat their living areas and live safely in their homes.
The fund criteria are as follows:
- Provide community support initiatives that provide food/activities;
- Enhance existing provision through extending local hours or introducing/increasing food provision;
- Adapt existing provision to meet identified local needs;
- Strengthen or establish food larders or food table provision.
