Scottish Executive direct funding to the voluntary sector in 1998-99 totalled £23 million. Of this, £275,000 (1.2% of the total) was allocated to the Ethnic Minority Grant Scheme. The scheme provides grants to voluntary organisations in Scotland for projects designed to reduce discrimination and promote racial equality.

A strategic review of Scottish Executive funding for the black and ethnic minority voluntary sector was announced on 27 October 1999 and the outcome of the review will be reported in the summer.
