Scottish National Party

Date lodged: 20 June 2018

To ask the Scottish Government how much it is providing in 2018-19 through the Empowering Communities Fund.

Answered by: Kevin Stewart 27 June 2018

This year the Scottish Government will provide £20 million through the Empowering Communities Fund which is a range of funds that assist communities to identify aspirations and priorities; create solutions and make improvements; and, to tackle inequality and poverty on their own terms. Where people feel they can influence what happens in their communities and can contribute to delivering change, they can achieve extraordinary results and huge benefits.
