Grants for environmental projects
The Postcode Local Trust, which is a grant-giving body funded by players of People's Postcode Lottery, has re-opened for applications. The Trust provides financial support for charities and good causes which help communities enhance their natural environment whilst benefitting the wider local area.
In 2019, Postcode Local Trust will fund projects that:
- Improve green spaces.
- Increase community access to outdoor spaces.
- Focus on renewable energy.
- Prevent flooding.
Registered charities in England, Scotland & Wales can apply from £500 - £20,000, whilst other constituted not for profit organisations may apply for up to £2,000 for community-based projects that improve local ecology and habitats, encourage bio-diversity and benefit the wider environment.
There is a two-stage application process. The deadline for Stage 1 applications is 14 August 2019. Successful applicants will then have between 11-25 September to submit a Stage 2 application.
