Following last week’s Referendum on the future of the UK in Europe, SNH has received initial advice from The Scottish Government that we should progress the first phase of the Green Infrastructure Fund as planned. This means that we expect to be able to award projects which will complete by the end of 2018 and that we intend to run a second funding round, closing in October, as planned.
The Green Infrastructure Fund is open again in both Highlands & Islands and Lowland & Upland Scotland. The closing date will be 31 October 2016. The outcomes, eligible activities and priorities are the same as the first funding round.
