    The Climate Action Fund will support communities in the UK to take local action on climate change. Through the Energy and Climate programme, they are looking for projects that show how communities can address climate change while tackling the energy challenges through community-led climate action.

    The programme will fund projects that:

    • Encourage communities to use energy in an environmentally friendly way
    • Bring communities together so that they can explore ways to promote energy efficiency
    • Enable communities to understand and engage with opportunities for clean energy generation, which do not use fossil fuels.

    They are looking for projects that will bring a range of benefits to communities, including:

    • Improving health and wellbeing
    • Creating local ’green’ jobs, such as jobs providing low-carbon heat for homes, community energy champions and energy advisors
    • Reducing carbon emissions
    • Supporting communities to be more resilient

    Notes on award amounts:

    They expect to fund around 8 - 12 projects. You can apply for up to £1.5 million over 2 to 5 years, with most projects awarded £1 million. The minimum grant is £500,000.

    Who can apply

    • Place-based partnerships
    • UK-wide partnerships
    • Single voluntary or community organisations

    How to apply

    Apply online via the National Lottery Community Fund website. You can contact the Lottery to discuss your idea before applying. Due to the high volume of applications, only those that most strongly meet the criteria can go through to the next stage.

    The closing date for applications is 11.59am on Friday 01 March 2024.
