Congratulations to all of the above, and heartfelt commiserations to all the individuals and groups whose very worthwhile projects will not be offered funding on this occasion.
Every project attracted in excess of 430 votes, with 3,459 people overall taking part in voting.
Money for Moray and tsiMORAY are very grateful for the efforts of every person and group who applied, and everyone who voted, as well as all those who took part in shaping the process, as this is a brilliant result for people in Moray and for the development of participatory democracy. Thank you!
We hope every individual and group taking part can feel proud that their project and ideas have received support, whether or not they receive an award offer on this occasion.
We also hope we can continue to work together to develop connections made, to the benefit of the development of their project idea, of their group, of their local community, and of the people of Moray.
