Aims

All successful projects will have demonstrated how they will support
employment and community resilience, through activities that deliver green
economic recovery from the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, linked to commitments within the National Islands Plan (NIP).
Additionally, successful applicants will contribute to a broad range of Scottish Government policies, through inclusive growth and Community Wealth Building (CWB) approaches.
As a community-focussed fund, the ICF will seek to maximise the impact of grant funding whilst delivering transformative outcomes. Projects should demonstrate how they will help islands to thrive through community-led initiatives that contribute to ongoing population priorities through green infrastructure activities that can play their
part in re-shaping and enhancing communities as part of a green economic recovery and to support resilient, successful and sustainable futures for their islands.
Successful applicants will need to have a clear focus on developing sustainable economic activities on islands, through job creation, sustainable employment and the safeguarding of jobs. A strong emphasis is required on how projects will contribute to Scotland’s fair and just transition to net zero and to climate-resilient living on islands, while also supporting COVID-19 recovery and increased community resilience.
Funding Information

Businesses and community groups located across Scotland’s inhabited islands can apply for grants of up to £150,000 for projects focused on supporting sustainable island economies and the journey towards net zero.
