Community Fund 2020/21

Community Fund 2020/21 (01 September 2020 – 31 March 2021)

The Community Fund provided support to voluntary and community groups that were active within their communities, and assisted communities or interest groups withthe development of community based projects. The scheme was provided and divided up between each of the five Area Partnerships (Berwickshire, Cheviot, Eildon, Teviot and Liddesdale and Tweeddale).

The Community Fund was an application based funding scheme based on need and was created to mainly fund defined projects but was able to provide one-off support grants to help sustain groups themselves if necessary.

Applications to the 2020/21 Community Fund were only accepted from 01 September 2020 until 31 March 2021 due to the redeployment of resources during the COVID-19 pandemic. Approximately £348k was awarded to 67 groups. Please see further detail on successful grant awards below.
