COVID 19 UPDATE

At a recent Board of Management meeting held on the 14th May 2020, it was agreed to temporarily freeze our MOCBP Fund, given the Covid-19 pandemic.

The fund will reopen once the Scottish Government lift the restrictions on the lockdown and our staff are back at work in our offices.

Once the Making Our Communities Better Places Fund has reopened, we will contact all applicants who have had their funding application frozen.
