Community grants from Stirling Council

We have two funding programmes that provide grants ranging from £100 - £1,500. We accept applications from constituted community and voluntary groups for projects which benefit residents in the Stirling Council area and help to develop prosperous, healthy, achieving and resilient communities. Capital and revenue project costs will both be considered.
