Community and voluntary groups in North Lanarkshire are invited to apply for funding for local regeneration projects.
North Lanarkshire Council would like to hear from groups with ideas for community-led projects to tackle deprivation and disadvantage among residents.
The council will then work with groups to apply for the Scottish Government’s Regeneration Capital Grant Fund (RCGF) which supports place-based regeneration projects.

“The RCGF offers local communities the opportunity to come up with ideas to improve their area for the benefit of residents,” said Councilor Allan Graham, head of the business and growth committee.
“Last year we secured £1.7million for a new community music and learning center in Motherwell and £790,000 for a new community center in Shotts, and we have already received funding for community centers in Forgewood and Glenboig.”
The next round of RCGF applications is expected to open in April. Any local organization interested in submitting a bid should visit www.northlanarkshire.gov.uk/RCGF to complete a form or email [email protected]
