Community climate and nature grant scheme

Herefordshire Council's community climate and nature grant scheme aims to support communities in Herefordshire to take action on the climate and ecological crisis.

We invited applications for funding for new projects which will deliver carbon reduction and/or ecological enhancement in your community.

There were four main themes:

  1. Community buildings
  2. Sustainable transport
  3. Nature
  4. Other - for projects outside of the three main categories.

How much you could apply for

The maximum amount of grant that could be applied for was £15,000.

Match funding was not required for grants of up to £5,000. Applications for over £5,000 were expected to demonstrate match funding of 25%. In kind contributions were not eligible as match funding.

Applications deadline
