Grants are available for community-led partnerships to make changes in their community that they believe will have the biggest impact on climate change. The Climate Action Fund is a new 10-year, £100 million fund set up with money provided by the National Lottery Community Fund with the aim of reducing the carbon footprint of communities across the UK. The funding is expected to support a mix of different places, communities, themes and initiatives, across the UK.
There is a total of £100 million over a 10-year period.
The following funding is available through phase one:
- Up to £200,000 over 18 months for initial development funding for groups that need more time to develop their partnership, engage widely or test their approaches.
- Up to £2.5 million over five years for groups that might be able to start longer-term plans at an earlier stage.
It is expected that the initial round will support around 15 community-led partnerships.
- Application deadline
- Initial ideas must be submitted by 5pm Wednesday 18 December 2019.
Full proposals must be submitted by midday Friday 27 March 2020.
