WMCA Community Green Grants (SCVO)

8 March 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


Join SCVO, Dudley CVS and The West Midlands Combined (WMCA) to find out how you can apply for funding through their Community Green Grants (West Midlands).

The WMCA has funding available to help redress the regional inequalities in access to green space.

The funding is open to any eligible group or organisation based in the West Midlands but priority will be given to areas with green deprivation.

Examples of potential projects include:

  • Nature playgroups that give children and families with no regular access to green space an opportunity to experience hands on activities.
  • Activities run at community gardens/open spaces/parks, eg. tree planting, gardening, urban greening, growing fruit and vegetables.
  • Development of new community green spaces that increase local access.
  • Projects that significantly improve the biodiversity of the area and promote behavioural change on accessing green spaces.
  • Those that increase or improve green/blue (canal, rivers etc.) spaces close to where people live.

This session will detail:

  • the different levels of funding available
  • how you can apply for funding and
  •  the process
