SSE - Highland Sustainable Development Fund

Summary

The priority areas are:

  • Creating opportunities: increase opportunities for education and employment
  • Empowering communities: build resilience and protect vulnerable residents
  • Building sustainable places: stimulate meaningful community regeneration
