Portobello Community Council

Climate Challenge Fund OPEN

Posted on: February 1st, 2016

 

The Climate Challenge Fund is open for applications from community led-organisations including community councils.

Climate Change Minister Aileen McLeod has confirmed the Fund will continue for another year, after it was allocated £10.3 million in the Scottish Government’s Draft Budget 2016-17.

The hugely successful Climate Challenge Fund has supported 756 community-led schemes since 2008, including energy efficiency, sustainable travel, local food growing projects and initiatives to tackle waste.

We invite community-led organisations including community councils across to apply for a share of the £10.3 million funding with grants up to £150,000 available per project.

With application deadlines in February we encourage potential applicants to apply quickly
