Community Climate Asset Fund

Supporting the Green Recovery in Scotland’s Communities

About the CCAF

As Scotland emerges from COVID-19, we have a chance to build a greener, fairer and more equal society and economy. The climate emergency has not gone away and Scottish Ministers remain absolutely committed to a just transition to net-zero emissions by 2045.

The Community Climate Asset Fund (CCAF) is a Scottish Government fund that was administered by Keep Scotland Beautiful.

Organisations awarded CCAF grants

On 8 January 2021 it was announced that 279 community-based organisations across Scotland would be awarded more than £3.2 million of funding to tackle climate change through the CCAF.

More about CCAF

The CCAF was introduced to:

  • Build on the invaluable role that community based organisations are playing in Scotland’s response to COVID-19
  • Support community groups to play a prominent role in the Green Recovery
  • Provide capital funding to community based organisations to help them tackle climate change as we accelerate our just transition to a net zero society
  • Complement funding provided through the Climate Challenge Fund and other community and place based initiatives
  • Help communities to reduce usage of petrol and diesel cars, cut waste, grow local food and reduce emissions from community buildings.

The CCAF closed to applications at midday on 9 November 2020.


From 1 July 2021, the Scottish Government is managing the Community Climate Action Fund (CCAF). For enquiries CCAF and future Scottish Government support for community climate action, please contact ClimateChangeEngagement@gov.scot
