Green Infrastructure Scotland - Funding
We are the Lead Partner for the ERDF Green Infrastructure Strategic Intervention which distributed £15 million of ERDF money through two competitive funds: the Green Infrastructure Fund, and the Green Infrastructure Community Engagement Fund.
The Green Infrastructure Strategic Intervention aims to improve Scotland’s urban environment by increasing and enhancing greenspace in our towns and cities, especially close to areas of multiple deprivation. This will make these areas much better for our biodiversity and more attractive for people to live and work in, and therefore attract jobs, businesses and further investment.
We are currently delivering fourteen capital projects across Scotland that improve or create urban green infrastructure. We are also delivering eleven smaller community engagement projects where the focus is on working with people to help them make the most of their local greenspace.
