If you are interested in applying for a grant, please read the Funding Schemes and Project Types section to check whether your proposed project meets our criteria, and falls into one of the funding schemes and project types. We also recommend that you read our FAQs and browse our Projects database to check to see if there are any projects similar to yours.
Please note that we expect applicants:
- To have made every effort to obtain at least 25% of project cost funding from other sources
- To have all their funding in place with our grant included
- To be able to complete their project within 12 months of the start date or by October 2018 whichever comes first
- To have involved their community in the project, where appropriate.
If you are planning to apply for a Major Project or Normal Grant, please contact us by email or telephone or complete the Enquiry Form.
If you are not sure how much to apply for or whether your proposed project will meet our requirements or whether you need to register as an Environmental Body, please complete the Enquiry Form or contact us.
If you are planning to apply for a Fast Track Grant, or if you have already heard back from us regarding your completed Enquiry Form, please submit the Application Form.
Please note that the application process is in two stages.
The first stage is a brief explanation about the organisation, the applicant and project. This needs to be submitted and you will receive a password that will enable you to access the second stage of the application. Using your password and log in details, you will be able to save your application at any point and return later to complete as many times as is necessary. It is only at this stage that you will be able to upload the supporting and essential documentation to complete your application before submission. Please make sure that you complete and submit your application before the deadline date.
To ensure that your application for a Major Project or Normal Grant is reviewed at the next Quarterly Review Meeting, please ensure that you submit your application before the deadline date shown on the Home Page.
For a Fast Track or My Wild Spaces application, there is no deadline date, as these are considered outside of our Quarterly Review Meetings.
