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.

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.
