A new £100mmillion fund has opened for applications to help local communities tackle climate change. The funding which will be available over the next 10 years is available to communities to work together to reduce their carbon foot print. This could include actions on sustainable energy, sustainable transport, consumption (food and waste), and the natural environment. The National Lottery Climate Action Fund will support up to 15 place-based community-led partnerships in the initial round of funding. The amount of funding available per application will depend on what each partnership needs at this stage: Applicants needing more time to develop the partnership can access initial development funding of up to £200,000 over 18 months; Applicants who are able to start longer term plans can access longer term awards of up to £2.5million over five years. Initial ideas must be submitted by 5pm on the 18th December 2019. Full proposals must be submitted by midday on the 27th March 2020.
