The scheme, which is funded through the 5p carrier bag charge, will provide funding amounts of £8,000, £10,000 and £12,000 to local communities to improve local green spaces. This can include creating pocket parks, sports facilities, woodland walks and community gardens.
Organisations eligible to apply include:
- not-for profit organisations (such as voluntary and community organisations)
- registered charities
- health bodies
- community councils
- development trusts
- local authorities
- housing organisations
Six grants a year will be awarded in each of the 428 Tesco regions. Tesco customers will be able to cast their vote on their local projects.
The application deadline will be in June 2016, with an exact date to be confirmed.
