Green Community Grants now available


Green Community Grants

"Think global and act local" for your community group to be awarded a pot of up to £2,000. As part of our climate and ecological emergency work, we've launched the borough’s first ever Green Community Grants.

The new grant scheme is specifically designed to support projects in our community that benefit the environment, as well as Dacorum’s residents. Any voluntary and community groups are invited to apply, including school groups and parish and town councils.

Projects must demonstrate that they will actively help towards the mitigation of the climate and ecological emergency within Dacorum. This could be with projects that reduce carbon emissions, increase active travel, improve biodiversity, increase sustainability, or raise environmental awareness locally. The environmental projects must also engage with or benefit the local community. The projects with the greatest impacts will be awarded the funding.

Groups can obtain a maximum grant of £2,000 from a total pot of £10,000. The scheme is open for applications until 31 January 2021.

Successful projects will be notified in February, with grants being allocated by March.

To find out more details and how to apply, visit our Grants page.

Please note that litter picking and fly-tipping projects will not be deemed suitable for the grants. If you are a community group that is interested in support with litter picks, please visit our Community litter picks page.
