Dumfries Climate Challenge Fund Information Surgery

Community-led organisations from Dumfries and Galloway and beyond wanting to know more about applying for funding from the Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) are invited to attend this Information Surgery.

The CCF provides grants and support for community-led organisations to tackle climate change by running projects that reduce local carbon emissions.

We encourage all community-led organisations to check that they are eligible to apply for CCF funding before booking a space at any of the CCF surgery events.
