Climate Challenge Fund
Providing funding for low carbon communities
Grants are available to help community organisations plan, learn, communicate and, most importantly, take action to reduce carbon emissions and adapt to the impacts of climate change. Projects could involve using less energy, walking and cycling more or using more local food supplies.
A new element - the Junior Climate Challenge Fund (JCCF) - was added in 2012. It is targeted at under-18 year olds. The JCCF aims to increase the proportion of the CCF which is supporting under 18's to become engaged and involved in a low carbon future.
The deadline of the current round of funding is 5 April 2013. A further funding round will take place in July 2013. You can submit an Expression of Interest for these future funding rounds and you will receive a response within four weeks. Applications are invited from Scottish communities for activities that will take place between 1 October 2011 and 31 March 2015.
