Trustees Funding Opportunities Update October 2015

Ullapool Harbour Trust allocates up to 2% of gross profit to stakeholder initiatives annually. (Historically funding applications were infrequent; more often than not requests were granted, some in full, some part-funded). More recently the number of funding and assistance requests has increased to a level that requires a more structured application and award process. From now on, the fund will be allocated on a quarterly basis with applicants submitting a written application for consideration by the Trustees. The application should contain the following information; a brief project outline, total cost, funding avenues explored and timeline. Applications will be assessed collectively at the end of each quarter and funds will be allocated accordingly. A summary of the quarter’s awards will be published in the Ullapool News.
The ethos of the award scheme is to fund local organisations and youth projects with an emphasis on community enhancement.
