Kincardineshire Development Partnership (KDP) are thrilled to announce the launch of their Supporting Communities Fund for Kincardine and Mearns. They are making £36,000 available to community groups throughout the area who are currently responding to the COVID19 crisis.
On 18th March, the Scottish Government announced an investment of £350 million to support local communities and households in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. This funding has been established as part of this investment package to provide financial support targeted through community anchor organisations, working in partnership with others in the community and with public services, in co-ordinating local responses to the pandemic.
KDP are delighted to have secured £3,000 for each of the 12 Community Council areas across K&M.
We at KDP have been moved by the community response to the crisis and we are keen we do what we can to ensure this level of support and enthusiasm can continue as this situation rolls on and it is hoped that this fund will help this activity remain sustainable for as long as our communities needs.
The fund was launched on Wednesday 3rd June 2020 and we are delighted to have been able to extend the deadline until mid-October or until all funds are allocated. Groups can apply for funds to help support COVID19 related activities.
