The FCC Scottish Action Fund is now open for its new round of applications.
Grants of between £2,000 and £50,000 are available to projects which have a total project cost of less than £500,000. Work must be targeted on a specific site at a single location.
The FCC Scottish Action Fund is a funding programme for not-for-profit organisations, under the Scottish Landfill Communities Fund (SLCF).
Landfill operators in Scotland collect tax on every tonne of waste that goes into their landfill sites. The Scottish government allows for a percentage of that tax to be diverted to the Scottish Landfill Communities Fund to support community, environmental and heritage projects around landfill sites and transfer stations. The scheme is regulated by SEPA and administered by WREN, who distribute the SLCF funding for waste and resource management company FCC Environment.
