The Community Climate Change Action Fund has been established to help local communities build resilience and reduce Staffordshire’s contributions to climate change. The funding is open to properly constituted, Staffordshire not-for profit organisations, including charities, societies, voluntary and community groups, parish councils and schools. It must deliver against at least one of the following three categories:
- Category 1 – Reducing carbon impact
- Category 2 – Improving air quality
- Category 3 – Adaptation to climate change
Each County Councillor has up to £1,000 to allocate through the Community Climate Action Fund. Projects can apply for funding up to a maximum of £1,000, there is no minimum. There is no requirement for match funding. If an application requires additional funding to deliver the project this must be secured before applying.
