Bòrd na Gàidhlig receives a Grant-in-Aid award from the Scottish Government for each financial year so that it can meet its aims and obligations.

It is through funding the main Gaelic organisations and other agreed contractors that the Bòrd carries out the majority of the work for which it is responsible. However, sometimes the Bòrd will award contracts to relevant individuals and organisations in order to accomplish a specific strategic goal, and the Bòrd also funds initiatives in partnership with other organisations. Bòrd na Gàidhlig distributes funding to public bodies who are drafting and implementing Gaelic language plans.

Bòrd na Gàidhlig runs funding schemes at different times through the year. However, if you have a proposal for a project at any time during the year when there is no suitable funding scheme open for applications, please contact us directly.
