This year, groups can apply for up to £15,000 from a £120,544 pot, to one of two categories. These categories include projects which reduce carbon emissions and those which engage communities on climate change.

Those interested in applying are encouraged to sign-up for an upcoming webinar, run by the Council, which will share information on eligible projects, and how to apply. This will take place on Tuesday 26 April 2022. You can sign-up to attend this session.
