Climate Challenge Fund project criteria
All Climate Challenge Fund projects must meet four criteria to be considered eligible for funding.
Community must be at the heart of the decision-making process of the project and projects must be designed and delivered by communities themselves.
2. Carbon Reduction
The project should lead to a measurable reduction in local carbon emissions through the activities it delivers.
3. Sustainable Legacy
The project should deliver a low carbon legacy in its community, with outcomes (and/or behaviours) that continue after the project is completed.
4. Improved climate literacy
The project should deliver an increased understanding of climate change in its community and help the community move to low carbon living.
All CCF grant awards are conditional on the confirmation of the Scottish Government's budget.
