Applying to the fund
There is a two-stage application process for funding, the first of which is the submission of an Expression of Interest form.
You can download an expression of interest form or pop in to our office at Custom House, Main Street, Bowmore, to pick up a paper version (copies available in the plastic wallet on the door if the office is unstaffed).
If you have trouble downloading the Word version of the form you can download a PDF version of the expression of interest form.
Once your expression of interest has been assessed, you may will be informed about whether it is being taken to the second stage. If your application is being progressed, you will be asked for more information, specific to your project, at this stage.
For further information and to express an interest in the fund, contact Billy on 01496 301413 or via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
