The CCF, funded by the Scottish government, supports community-led organisations in Scotland to tackle climate change by running projects that reduce local carbon emissions. Previously funded projects have helped communities to reduce their reliance on car travel, cut waste, grow local food and lower energy use in homes and community buildings. The project must deliver increased awareness and understanding of climate change and enable the community to make informed choices to reduce its impact on climate change. It must lead to a measurable reduction in local carbon emissions through the activities it delivers and deliver a low carbon legacy, that continues after the project is completed. Next deadline is 20 September 2019.
