Funding to help communities boost their local environment – Deadline 18th January 2019
Don’t miss out! The deadline for the second round of the Landfill Tax Communities scheme is the 18th January 2019 (23:59).
Grants of between £5,000 and £50,000 will be available for projects that meet the scheme criteria. WCVA may also award a grant to one nationally significant project with a value of between £50,000 – £250,000. The application process can be viewed on WCVA’s website – https://www.wcva.org.uk/funding/landfill-disposals-tax-communities-scheme/application-process
From here you will find information on how to access the application forms on eTender Wales. Please note there is one form for the main grants and a separate one for the nationally significant grant.
The Scheme encourages activities that help native wildlife and restore, maintain and enhance natural habitats, create community green space, and encourage prevention, re-use and recycling of waste, including food waste and composting initiatives. It will also fund the creation of green infrastructure – such as allotments, hedges, green roofs, parks and gardens – improvements to community facilities and activities to bring neglected and run-down areas back into community use.
Applications are welcomed from all sectors. Check out the scheme guidance document on the website for more information about what the scheme will fund.
