National Lottery : Community Fund - Climate Action Fund - round 2
The Climate Action Fund (CAF) is supporting communities across the UK to take action on climate change. These communities will demonstrate what’s possible when people lead in this work. With National Lottery funding, they’ll work together, share their learning and be active participants in a broader movement of change.
CAF is part of The National Lottery Community Fund’s Environment Strategy. Since April 2013, the Fund has awarded more than £450 million, through over 7,500 grants, to projects that focus on improving the environment to enhance communities and people’s lives.
In 2020, we awarded funding to 23 projects across the UK as part of the first round of the CAF programme, supporting communities to respond to the climate emergency.
This second round will focus on supporting medium-scale to large-scale projects addressing waste and consumption. Our focus remains on place-based, community-led partnerships that will make the changes in their community they believe will have the biggest impact on climate change.
At this initial application stage, we’re interested in hearing about your project, the long-term vision and aims, and how your community has been involved in shaping and deciding what you’ll do. This application should come from one lead partner, which should be one of the eligible types of organisation listed in ‘Who can and cannot apply’.
With the COVID-19 pandemic still with us, we’ll continue to work flexibly. This will also need to be the same for projects in adapting to any new guidance or restrictions.
