Dundee organisations have been urged to make a bid for common good fund cash to help their ongoing efforts to combat the impacts of coronavirus.
Almost £90,000 will be made available with a particular focus on those affected by the pandemic.
It could help groups facing additional costs of introducing services which are re-starting in line with guidance from the Scottish Government.
A total of £87,000 has been made available through the Dundee Partnership with awards generally in the range of £5,000 to £25,000.
Last year, the Common Good Fund contributed to more than 25 causes in the city including Dundee Women’s Festival, Deaf Links and the Dundee City Pipe Band and Youth Music initiative.
Lord Provost Ian Borthwick said: “This year has been one of significant challenges for many and it is with this in mind that the common good fund is being prioritised for organisations who deliver services for the good of the city and who have been impacted by Covid-19.
“I would urge any interested organisations to get in touch and apply for this funding.”
Bodies applying for an award must be free of any political bias and must not use the award to fund activities involving political campaigning.
Whilst supporting blood donations and the Festival of Remembrance, the fund will otherwise not meet expenditure of a recurring nature and so applications should be one-off in nature. Repeat applications will also not be considered.
