Communities in Fife can apply for funding to help tackle the climate emergency.
Climate Action Fife and Fife Climate Hub are inviting groups to apply for Community Climate Grants.
Two distinct grants are available. The Small Grants Fund offers groups up to £500 to run climate-related events in their community. The Seed and Development Grant offers up to £1,000 for climate-related activities and projects.
A total of £27,500 is available. £7,500 from the Small Grants Fund and £20,000 from the Seed and Development Grants. It is expected that up to 35 community groups will benefit from funding this year.
Last year the Small Grants Fund helped 15 community groups run events such as gardening workshops at Pittencrieff Park, developing a Local Place Plan in Kingsbarns and creating willow structures in Bat’s Wood in Buckhaven.
Support is available for applicants. An online information event will be held on Tuesday 19 September for groups interested in applying. This event offers a chance to find out everything about applying for a Community Climate Grant. It will be followed by a Q&A for groups to seek guidance on their applications. Sign up on the FCCAN website.
Groups can apply for both grants and the deadline for both is Sunday 22 October 2023.
