Keep Scotland Beautiful have announced that their small grant scheme for environmental projects is now open.
The scheme provides grants of up to £250 for community groups. The programme gives examples of the types of projects that might be funded; including litter picking equipment, bulbs, fruit trees and fencing.
The first deadline for applications is Decemeber 16, with successful groups likely to be notified in January 2015.
Funding for the scheme comes from carrier bag charges paid by Tesco customers in Scotland, following the introduction of the single use carrier bag charge.
