Our Green Infrastructure Fund is making a difference in many locations. One of the most significant projects we are supporting is in Glasgow’s Easterhouse. Here an ambitious approach is transforming areas of vacant and derelict land into attractive urban greenspaces, which will connect more people with nature and encourage them to embrace the outdoors.

The Green Infrastructure Fund is currently open for applications for projects in the Highlands and Islands. The same population and SIMD criteria apply in H&I as in LUPS but projects can apply for ERDF intervention rates of up to 70%.
