The Green Infrastructure Fund has re-opened for applications from the Highlands & Islands area only. The overall amount of funding available is £500,000. The closing date for applications will be 9 January 2017.

Round 2 closed

Thank you to those organisations who applied to Round 2 of the Green Infrastructure Fund.  We received seven applications in the Lowland and Upland Scotland area. These have now been screened and will shortly be assessed by our panel of assessors.


There is only a couple of days left to the Round 2 deadline.  We will not accept any applications submitted to us after midnight on Monday 31st October.

Please email if you have any queries as we approach the end of the support phase.


There is just over a week to the Round 2 deadline. A useful check for your application at this stage is the scale of your application against what remains in the Green Infrastructure Fund.

The first two projects to receive funding through the Green Infrastructure Fund were announced this week by the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Jobs and Fair Work, Keith Brown. The news release below gives further details.
