How much money can I apply for?
The most amount of money you can apply to the ILF Scotland Transition Fund for is £4,000.
In your application form, you will need to give the reasons why you need the money, what you want to do with it and what difference it will make to your life.
We evaluate all applications fairly and consistently and as a public body, we have to demonstrate value for money in our grant funding role. If we think it is appropriate, we may ask you to opt for an item which is more reasonably priced than the one you have ask for but is still suitable for your needs.
