Community Climate Grants

We work in partnership with Fife Climate Hub to offer Community Climate Grants. Funding is available to help community groups in Fife to create climate action in their local area through events and activities, start climate projects and build capacity to deliver climate action. Two distinct funds are available.

Small Grants Fund

The Small Grants Fund supports groups who wish to engage their communities in climate related activities. Groups can apply for up to £500.

The fund aims to encourage new climate action and conversation in communities who are less engaged on climate issues. Small Grants activities and events should take place during our Fife Climate Festival (Monday 23rd September – Saturday 5th October)

Applications for the Small Grants Fund close on Sunday 16th June 2024.

Seed and Development Fund

The Seed and Development Fund is open to any Fife community group who would like to start up a climate project or build their capacity to deliver climate action locally. Groups can apply for up to £1,000. There is £20,000 available in the funding pot, which means this fund can support up to 20 projects.

Funding can be used by groups to start up a new project, take forward existing plans, or to increase their capacity to take climate action. For example, the fund could cover training costs, a feasibility study, development of a website or could be used as match funding.

The Seed and Development Fund is open for applications on an ongoing basis, starting on 8th May 2024.

The final date for submission is 31st January 2025. Grants must be spent by 22nd March 2025.

2022/23

Funding from the Small Grants Fund helped 15 community groups to engage local people in climate action. The groups used this support to organise a varied range of activities. Groups ran climate action taster sessions, planted willow ‘fedges’ and monitored local wildlife affected by the climate emergency. One group created a plastic-free events guide.
