Fallago Environment Covid-19 Recovery Grant Scheme

Round 2 of the Fallago Environment Fund Covid-19 Recovery grant scheme is now open, to help Borders residents move towards recovery from the impact of the coronavirus lockdown.  Voluntary and community organisations operating in the Scottish Borders and the Parish of Gifford are eligible to apply for grants for projects that improve quality of life and wellbeing and help to reduce the negative impact of social isolation for local residents. Grants of between £500 and £2,500 will be available and priority will be given to small organisations with local impact, for recovery projects that would not happen or would be significantly delayed without this support.  
This limited-lifetime Grant Programme is administered by The Bridge. The Guidelines and Application Form in two formats can be downloaded from The
Bridge's website, for return to them by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  

This is the last round for the current funding - the deadline is 9am on Monday 13th July; The Bridge aim to notify applicants within 7 days of this deadline.

Potential projects could include activities required to help people to exercise safely, including the maintenance of assets such as recreation areas, footpaths or community woodlands, so that people can use them more easily; projects involving better use of community gardens or allotments. Please note that certain types of projects are excluded as other funds are available for them (loss of funding, provision of food, digital projects).

More information, including the results of successful Round 1 projects, is available on their website at
