Welcome to the Fallago Environment Fund. Our next deadline for completed applications is 1st March 2017.
The aim of the Fund is ‘to enhance the quality of life for local communities and visitors to the Borders through investment in the protection, enhancement and appreciation of the natural, built and cultural heritage of the Scottish Borders environment’.
Fallago Environment Fund offers two funding programmes, a Main Grants Programme and a Core Funding Programme. The main emphasis of the Fund will be on capital projects that leave a long term legacy (Main Grants Programme). However, core funding support will be considered, in exceptional circumstances, to those organisations that can clearly demonstrate how their activities complement and deliver on the aim of the Fund (Core Funding Programme). General information on the Fund and how it is managed is available here and details on how to apply for funding can be found below.
