Veolia Environmental Trust Announces 2016 Deadlines

 

Not-for-profit organisations with environmental or community-based projects in the United Kingdom are eligible to apply for grants of up to £75,000. To be eligible, applicants must:

  • Be constituted.
  • Have a bank account.
  • Hold annual elections.

Applicants must also be based within five miles of a Veolia site – a postcode location checker is available on the website, which is constantly updated to reflect Veolia’s operating plans.

Funding is available for capital improvement projects at a single site with discrete start and end dates. Projects should fall under one of the following categories:

  • Community buildings and rooms, including community centres, village halls, community spaces within religious buildings, and Scout or Girlguiding buildings.
  • Outdoor Spaces, including public parks, nature reserves, community gardens, footpaths, bridleways and cycle-paths.
  • Play and recreation, including play areas, skateparks, Multi Use Games Areas (MUGAs), sports grounds, pavilions and changing rooms.
  • Supporting Biodiversity, including the species related element of a BAP (national or local), the habitat related element of a BAP or HAP (national or local), and reintroduction programmes to a specific habitat.

Applicants will be required to secure match funding of at least 20% before submitting a full application. ProTjects requiring over £40,000 will also need an independent Third Party Contributor to reimburse the landfill operator with 10% shortfall to release the grant. This contribution can be made by another funder, a local council or an individual.

While initial enquiries can be made at any time, full applications must be submitted by noon on 26 February 2016, 27 May 2016 and 26 August 2016.
