When awarded, the winning projects will all help to contribute to improving the quality of lives locally.
Final decision day events are taking place over the following two weekends where communities can come forward and vote for their favourite project in a first-past-the-post style ballot.

Young people aged 11-25 in each of the three areas will get a chance to vote through the Young Scot website – young.scot/falkirkpb – using their Young Scot National Entitlement Card.
