Scotland’s Climate Challenge Fund to Continue in 2018/19

The Scottish Government is inviting applications from community groups in Scotland to develop and implement projects that will reduce the environmental impact of their community through reducing carbon emissions.

Grants of up to £150,000 per year, per project, are available to Scottish-based voluntary, community, and not-for-profit organisations to plan, develop, and implement projects that offer significant carbon emission reduction, are community-led, and aim to improve the lives of future generations.

The Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) supports activities including the following:

  • Installation of energy efficient measures in community owned buildings.
  • Advice and support on energy efficiency.
  • Initiatives to provide lower carbon travel alternatives.
  • Provision of community growing space and eating more sustainably.
  • Schemes to reduce, reuse and recycle waste.

The deadline for expressions of interest is 28 August 2017 (5pm).

The independent environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful manages the Climate Challenge Fund on behalf of the Scottish Government.

Full details about the funding programmes can be found on the Keep Scotland Beautiful website.
