Grassroots Fund & Improvement Fund ... apply by 8th March 2021!

corra-logo-new-webThe Corra Foundation is administering two new funds on behalf of the Scottish Government. The funds will support grassroots, community and residential organisations to improve drugs services.

Applications are now open and will close on 8th March, meaning that funding decisions will be announced by 31st March. Full details are available at

The Grassroots Fund will provide grants of up to £50,000 to community based organisations to enable them to stabilise or increase capacity and provide further reach into the community. 

Eligible organisations must have an annual income under £1 million.

The Improvement Fund will provide grants of up to £100,000 to support services that lead to fast and appropriate access to treatment, residential rehabilitation, and collaborative approaches that help people to address the underlying challenges that they face.

The aim of these funds is to provide grants quickly to support organisations which need funding now to allow them to develop and improve services. The closing date means you have limited time to apply but to assist with this the application form has been kept as short and simple as possible.
