The Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) provides grants and support for community-led organisations to tackle climate change by running projects that reduce local carbon emissions, with initiatives including energy efficiency, sustainable travel, local food and resource efficiency.
Community-led organisations not currently in receipt of a CCF grant are invited to apply for funding of up to £150,000 per organisation, per year for 2019/20 and 2020/21. The deadline to submit an Expression of Interest, the first stage of the application process, is 5pm on 3 August 2018. Current CCF Grant Recipients should contact their CCF Development Officer at Keep Scotland Beautiful.
Keep Scotland Beautiful manages the CCF on behalf of the Scottish Government and is running CCF Information Surgeries in June and July.
All potential CCF applicants should refer to the CCF website or contact Keep Scotland Beautiful for full information about criteria, eligibility and deadlines
