The Second Round of the Landfill Tax Communities Scheme is now open for applications
Grants of between £5,000 and £50,000 will be available for projects that meet scheme criteria. There will also be one larger project of national significance also being funded each year. The application for the larger project will be available soon.
The Scheme encourages activities that help native wildlife and restore, maintain and enhance natural habitats, create community green space, and encourage prevention, re-use and recycling of waste, including food waste and composting initiatives. It will also fund the creation of green infrastructure – such as allotments, hedges, green roofs, parks and gardens – improvement to community facilities and activities to bring neglected and run-down areas back into community use.
