The Marr Area Committee of Aberdeenshire Council set up this grant scheme to support community development. Marr Area Partnership (MAP) administers the scheme and offers support to community groups to achieve the maximum benefit from the awards.
Awards will be up to a maximum value of 50% of a project’s cost. The maximum grant awarded under the scheme is £750 (i.e. a project costing £1.5k or more can receive £750). The awards are used in tandem with match funding raised by the community. Community fundraising can be from efforts within the community or from other grant bodies. MAP can assist you in finding other sources of funds (wherever possible try and find local funds first i.e. wind farms, common good funds, etc).
