Under this scheme, we look to award grants to projects that provide or improve biodiversity, community spaces, and places for outdoor recreation.
You may have a building that needs improvement in order to increase the range of services on offer to the local community. You could have a site-based project that is working to protect and enhance a species or habitat. Or maybe it’s an open space such as a park, play area or woodland that needs transforming to benefit local people of all ages. In a nutshell, we want to make sure that everyone has access to high-quality local community facilities.
Over the years, Biffa Award has awarded funding to hundreds of projects. We receive a continuously high number of applications, resulting in strong competition.
You can apply for between £10,000 and £75,000. You will need to find a third party contributor(s) to provide 10% of the grant you are applying for. What’s this?
