A £500,000 fund that brought wildflowers, bees, upcycling, food planting and climate awareness to communities across the Liverpool City Region is back for 2022!
Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram’s Community Environment Fund supported 58 schemes last year. Projects, which were delivered between March and September, included composting, the creation of an edible wall, work to restore habitats, climate education and the creation of a garden to help elderly people with physical and mental health issues.
Applications for Phase II funding are now open! Grants are available for high impact community environment projects throughout the city region. This year grants will be available for smaller projects of up to £5,000, with up to £30,000 available for larger projects.
The fund’s application criteria have been decided by the Liverpool City Region Climate Partnership which was set up to provide expert advice on tackling the climate emergency.
