The funding is for a one-year period, for community projects aimed at improving the quality of life for local residents.
“Volunteers, local groups and charities provide invaluable support within our local communities,” said the council’s Cabinet Member for Communities, Councillor Russell Imrie (Lab).
“Our small grants programme helps provide them with the key funding they need to take forward local projects and provide support which can make a real difference to the lives of local people.”
