How to apply

There is a two-stage process involved in applying for Highland Coastal Communities Funding:

  2. Full application - this will be considered by local Councillors at Area Committee (or in the case of strategic projects, applications will be considered at a sub committee of the Infrastructure, Environment and Economy Committee).

The Expression of interest form can be accessed here.
