Community projects working to improve their greenspace in North Lanarkshire could be given a cash boost following the launch of this year’s grant funding from the Central Scotland Green Network’s (CSGN) Community Projects Fund.

Supported by Forestry Commission Scotland, the £60,000 CSGN Community Projects Fund aims to increase community use of greenspaces and is focussed on ventures which will benefit children and young people under 16 years old, or which will involve this age group in the project.

Groups can apply for grants of between £1,500 and £3,000. All projects must be carried out within the CSGN boundaries, with work being completed by March 31 2014. The deadline for applications is 28 October 2013.

For further information or to discuss a potential application, please contact Ruby McKeown at Glasgow and Clyde Valley Green Network Partnership on 0141 229 7746 / ruby.mckeown@gcvgreennetwork.gov.uk
