The Community Initiative Grant Scheme is a grant scheme from Aberdeenshire Council’s Garioch Area Committee, administered by The Garioch Partnership. Applications are reviewed by a grants panel of local volunteers, who assess applications and make recommendations to the Board of The Garioch Partnership.

The scheme is open to not-for-profit community groups or community-run organisations in the Garioch area.

We still have money in the pot for this financial year, so if you have a project that you’d like funded, please get in touch. We could make a contribution of up to £750 (£1,000 for exceptional projects) towards your project.



Please ensure that you read the full guidance for applicants before applying.  The guidance is available online and in a printable PDF format:
