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

There are four main themes:

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

Who can apply

Applicants must be a formally constituted non-profit group or organisation based in Herefordshire or a Herefordshire Parish Council.

How much you can apply for

The maximum amount of grant that can be applied for is £15,000.

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

Applications deadline

As funding is limited we recommend that you apply as early as possible and do not wait until the deadline.  

The grant assessment panel will meet for the first time week commencing 15 November 2021.

The final deadline for submitting your application is 15 December 2021

Please read the Grant information and conditions for more details.
