Council Grant Funding to Support Local Communities

Welcome to the Third Sector grant funding page.   

Argyll and Bute Council third sector grants are aimed at supporting communities and vulnerable people and helping to kick start new projects and events.  

The Council has made available £140,000 in 2014 for third sector grants to groups and organisations at a local level working to improve community life across Argyll and Bute. 

In April, seventy-three organisations were successfully awarded grant funding totalling £117,490 leaving a remaining balance of £22,510 still to be awarded.

The closing date for receipt of applications forms for a decision in August was 16 June 2014.  

Application forms for 2015/16 will be available later in the year.
