Veolia Environmental Trust Reopens for Applications
The Veolia Environmental Trust offers grants of up to £75,000 for projects located within the proximity of a qualifying Veolia site in England or Wales. Match funding of at least 20 per cent is required, and applicants requesting grants of £40,000 or more require a third party contribution.
The funding is available for capital improvement projects at a single site with discrete start and end dates.
Projects should fall under one of the following categories:
• Community buildings and rooms, including community centres, village halls, community spaces within religious buildings, and Scout or Girlguiding buildings.
• Outdoor spaces, including public parks, nature reserves, community gardens, footpaths, bridleways and cycle-paths.
• Play and recreation, including play areas, skateparks, multi use games areas, sports grounds, pavilions and changing rooms.
Constituted not-for-profit organisations can apply as long as their project is located within five miles of a Veolia Environmental Services facility. This could be a landfill site or a civic amenity site, or a transfer station or depot – as long as it is operated by Veolia.
The next (and possibly final) deadline for stage one applications is noon 31 August 2017.
