Submit your Climate Challenge Fund Expression of Interest now

Potential applicants to the Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund are encouraged to submit their Expression of Interest as far as possible in advance of the 3 August (5pm) deadline.

Expressions of Interest (EOI) are assessed in chronological order by Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) Development Officers, so the earlier an EOI is submitted, the sooner a Development Officer will be able to get in touch and provide feedback and support. This will also help to avoid a large spike of EOI's close to the deadline day.

There has been a high level of interest in the latest round of CCF funding since it was announced by Cabinet Secretary for the Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform, Roseanna Cunningham, at a visit to current CCF recipient Leith Community Crops in Pots.

Expressions of Interest to the CCF are invited from community-led organisations not currently in receipt of a CCF grant. The deadline for current (2018/19 only) CCF Grant Recipients has already passed.

David Gunn, Climate Challenge Fund Manager at Keep Scotland Beautiful said:

"Applicants that want to hear feedback on the eligibility of their funding bid as soon as possible are encouraged to submit an Expression of Interest well before the deadline.

"We expect this round of the Climate Challenge Fund to be very competitive so this is another reason to allow as much time as possible to develop a strong application.

Climate change impacts all of us and we need collective action to tackle it, so we look forward to supporting many community-led organisations with their Climate Challenge Fund applications and see this as part of our work to help make Scotland clean, green and sustainable."

All potential applicants should refer to the CCF website for further information regarding CCF criteria, eligibility, deadlines and how to apply.
