Scottish Government’s Towns and BIDs Resilience and Recovery Fund supports immediate concerns and actions to help prepare towns, their communities and businesses for the gradual easing of lockdown rules.
Managed by Scotland’s Towns Partnership (STP), the fund aims to help resource project delivery, where a recovery strategy for the town has been agreed with the local authority. Examples of relevant application actions include, amongst others: physical distancing and public health infrastructure (including PPE and hand sanitising equipment), development of “virtual high streets”, and communication campaigns.
The fund is open to constituted groups with suitable governance controls; towns with Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) which are already benefitting from the COVID-19 BIDs Resilience Fund will only be eligible in exceptional circumstances.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday 24th July.
To apply, or for further information (including eligibility criteria), please visit the STP website.
