Stage 1 Technical Assistance Funding from the Scottish Land Fund

Published: April 29, 2024


The Scottish Land Fund supports rural and urban communities to become more resilient and sustainable through the ownership and management of land and land assets.

Funded by the Scottish Government and delivered in partnership by The National Lottery Community Fund and Highlands and Islands Enterprise, it offers grants of up to £1 million to help communities take ownership of the land and buildings that matter to them, as well as practical support to develop their aspirations into viable projects.

Technical assistance funding is available to help you prepare to purchase an asset. These grants are normally between £2,500 and £30,000. The average grant size at stage 1 is around £10,000. Grants can fund specialist advice and/or professional fees including the preparation of feasibility studies and business plans, valuations and surveys as well as some costs towards community engagement.

With an ongoing application deadline, full details of the fund and how to apply can be found at Scottish Land Fund | The National Lottery Community Fund (
