Update from the Climate Challenge Fund

ccf logoThe Climate Challenge Fund is a Scottish Government programme managed by the independent charity Keep Scotland Beautiful.  It is ‘allotment friendly’ – a number of allotment associations have already benefited from this fund.

Streamlined decision making procedures have been announced  for decisions under £30,000.  These applications will also benefit from monthly funding decisions.  They will be assessed by Keep Scotland Beautiful and presented to the CCF grants panel for a funding decision on a monthly basis.

An additional £10.3 million is being made available by the Scottish Government which extends the Climate Challenge Fund until March 2016.  Grants up to £150,000 per project per year are available.  In total 612 projects run by community groups across Scotland have received £52 million from CCF to reduce carbon emmissions, tackle climate change and make community improvements.  All applicants receive help and support from development officers at Keep Scotland Beautiful.

Applications for CCF funding are invited now.  The next funding deadline is 6 January 2014.  For full details see www.climatechallengefund.org.

You can also sign up for free training events at this web site.  These range from information surgeries to community placemaking workshops.
