The Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) is open for applications.
The CCF provides grants and support for community-led organisations to tackle climate change by running projects that reduce local carbon emissions, with initiatives including energy efficiency, sustainable travel, local food and resource efficiency.
Community-led organisations not currently in receipt of a CCF grant are invited to apply for funding of up to £150,000 per organisation, per year for 2019/20 and 2020/21. For 2019/20, some CCF Grant Recipients will receive match funding from the European Regional Development Fund, part of the European Structural and Investment Fund.
Current CCF Grant Recipients should contact their CCF Development Officer at Keep Scotland Beautiful.
There will also be a Falkirk information surgery on Thursday 12th July, 10am – 2pm at Callendar House, Callendar Road, Falkirk, FK1 1YR. Registration begins at 9:45am. The information surgery will include presentations from Keep Scotland Beautiful and updates from current CCF recipients, along with the opportunity for attendees to take part in a Q&A session, and to talk through projects ideas on a one-to-one basis with CCF staff and partners.
The deadline for Expression of Interests, the first stage of the application process, is 5pm on Friday 3rd August.
