How much can you apply for?
The scheme can provide grants from £10,000 to £100,000. Larger funding requests should be discussed with Council officers as soon as possible. However, the Council is keen to spread the Crown Estate funding as widely as possible so it is unlikely to offer grants of more than £100,000 very often.
The scheme can fund up to 90% of eligible project costs, although applicants will be expected to demonstrate that possible avenues of external match funding have been investigated. Applications may have a better chance of being successful where they can demonstrate some level of match funding.
Applications that are a strong fit with the Shetland Partnership Plan and deliver on the plan’s outcomes will be prioritised for funding.
