5pm on Friday 2nd September is the deadline for applications to this year’s Lochaber participatory budgeting funding opportunity which will see £30,000 distributed to local groups, clubs, organisation’s and projects that improve the quality of life for people living in the area. 

It’s the people of Lochaber that will decide who gets the money as applications will be put to a public on-line vote between the 12th and 18th September. There will also be the option to vote through libraries in Fort William, Kinlochleven, Mallaig and Strontian and through the post.

The application process is short and simple and also gives groups and organisation’s a chance to promote their group or service. There’s lots of money to give away so don’t miss your chance apply today!
