Stratford-on-Avon Community Climate Change Fund

Please note: the deadline for phase one applications has now passed.

In November, Stratford-on-Avon District Council's Cabinet agreed to establish a Stratford-on-Avon Community Climate Change Fund (CCCF). The purpose of the CCCF is to enable the delivery of climate change focused projects within the communities of Stratford-on-Avon.

The following groups will be able to apply for grant funding through the CCCF:

  • Town or Parish Councils
  • Formally constituted charity and community groups.

The CCCF will fund projects which meet one of the following criteria:

  • Projects which result in a direct reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
  • Projects which build resilience to the impacts of climate change
  • Projects which will result in research enabling access to more significant funding applications.

£100,000 will be awarded across two phases, with £50,000 being available in each phase.

The first phase will open for expressions of interest from Monday 22nd January 2024, and will close on Friday 16th February.

Applications will be considered in two stages. Firstly, you will need to submit an Expression of Interest providing preliminary information regarding your project. If your Expression of Interest shows that your project fulfils the overall eligibility criteria, you will be invited to submit a full application. Details of the full application process can be found in the Grant Process document below.
