Not-for-profit organisations with environmental or community-based projects in England and Wales are invited to apply for funding in 2017.

Grants of up to £75,000 are available for projects located within the proximity of a qualifying Veolia site in England or Wales. Match funding of at least 20% is required, and applicants requesting grants of £40,000 or more require a Third Party Contribution.

The funding is available for capital improvement projects at a single site with discrete start and end dates.

Projects should fall under one of the following categories:

  • Community buildings and rooms, including community centres, village halls, community spaces within religious buildings, and Scout or Girlguiding buildings;

  • Outdoor Spaces, including public parks, nature reserves, community gardens, footpaths, bridleways and cycle-paths;

  • Play and recreation, including play areas, skateparks, Multi Use Games Areas (MUGAs), sports grounds, pavilions and changing rooms;

  • Supporting Biodiversity, including the species related element of a BAP (national or local), the habitat related element of a BAP or HAP (national or local), and reintroduction programmes to a specific habitat;

Constituted not-for-profit organisations can apply as long as their project is located within five miles of a Veolia Environmental Services facility. This could be a landfill site or a civic amenity site, or a transfer station or depot - as long as it is operated by Veolia.
