Kirklees Council – Online news

Community groups, not-for-profit organisations and charities wishing to bid for up to £10,000 to help their local environment can now apply to Kirklees Council.The aim of the Environment Grant Scheme is to support projects which protect and enhance the environment and reduce carbon emissions for the benefit of local people.

Organisations wishing to apply for a large grant of up to £10,000 need to apply no later than August 17. These must be exceptional projects which will demonstrate innovative, sustainable benefits for Kirklees.

Organisations with ideas to improve the local environment can also apply for small grants up to £500 or medium grants up to £2,000. The next deadline date for the first round of small and medium grants is August 17, with a deadline of November 2 for the second round if there are any funds remaining.

The grants can be used as match funding. All applications must demonstrate value for money.

Cllr Peter McBride, Cabinet member for Investment and Regeneration, said: “The grants aim to encourage projects which involve communities in tackling climate change and encourage groups to develop creative and sustainable projects which enhance the natural environment in the rural and urban areas of Kirklees.”

The council’s application process has been split into two parts. All organisations applying for grants must first register their organisation with the Grant Access Point, which will then issue an application pack.

The deadline for registration is July 10 to ensure there is sufficient time to prepare your application. (Please note groups will only be required to register once every three years).
