The fund is open to applicants carrying out activity within 5miles of an eligible landfill or waste transfer site - view the map here to check if you're eligible to apply. From this page you can also view the scheme's other webpages for further information and the scheme guidance. 

The scheme funds projects with focusses on Biodiversity, Waste Minimisation and the reduction of Waste to Landfill and Wider Environmental Enhancements.

We've run two rounds of the fund so far and have funded some great projects making positive environmental enhancements in their locality with the support of the community. From pine martens to reuse of discarded plastics, there is a variety of activity happening across Wales. 

You can read more about the projects already running in Wales from here.

There is a 12-week application window, the closing date is 21 July 2019. 

We receive a high number of applications which makes the funding process very competitive. If you would like support and guidance in the development of a project you can contact your local Third Sector Support Wales CVC here
