Meet the Funder: The Community Environment Fund Zoom Conference Call

January 9 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Exciting news! SCVO has teamed up with The West Midlands Combined Authority to deliver an information session on The Community Environment Fund – being held on Tuesday 9th January 2024, 10 am via a Zoom Conference Call to find out all the details you need to get started.

The fund was launched in October 2023 with £1m of grant funding available to support communities in delivering initiatives that improve the environment and people’s lives.

Approximately 30 small grants of up to £25,000 and 5 large grants of up to £100,000 will be awarded for projects under the following project themes:

  • Natural environment – to protect, restore and enhance nature and wildlife.
  • Access to green space – to provide better access to and community use of green space for health and wellbeing – similar to the recent Community Green Grants programme.
  • Climate adaptation – to make communities more resilient and prepared for the impacts of climate change.
  • Circular economy – to reduce waste and keep resources and materials in use for as long as possible.
  • Environment awareness – to improve knowledge of environment issues and support behaviour change.
