Availability of development grants extended
Development Grants of up to £1,500 will still be available from the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund in the New Year. Additional application deadlines have been announced as 13 January and 10 February 2017, with funding decisions made on a monthly basis. Please note: due to high levels of demand we now expect 13 January 2017 to be the final deadline for Development Grants.
Since their re-introduction in July 2016, Development Grants totalling £64,611 have been awarded to 49 community-led organisations. The grants have helped organisations develop applications for 2017/18 Climate Challenge Fund funding, plus applications for other grant funders that support climate action projects. The grants have also supported peer-to-peer learning activities that are building the capacity of community-led organisations to tackle climate change.
We look forward to supporting many more organisations with their Development Grant applications over the coming months and are proud of our role in empowering community action on climate change through our administration of the Climate Challenge Fund on behalf of the Scottish Government.
