Green Grants in Wales

The Supporting Sustainable Living Grant scheme is designed to support projects aiming to reduce Wales's greenhouse gas emissions and encouraging Welsh citizens to make sustainable lifestyle choices.
Grants of £5,000 to £15,000 are available, with grants of £35,000 being available in exceptional circumstances. Up to 50% of projects costs may be supported; however 75% may be made available in exceptional circumstances.
The funding will take three stages:
  • Stage 1: Project Development Grants - helping applicants to research areas where they could tackle climate change and to identify the methods, tools and budget necessary to achieve a positive impact.
  • Stage 2: Implementation Grants - helping applicants to pilot projects that are aimed at influencing specific behaviours or lifestyle choices that will tackle the causes and consequences of climate change.
  • Stage 3: Replication Grants - for applicants that have already successfully piloted one behaviour change project to roll it out on a larger scale.
Legally constituted organisations from all sectors may apply.
Applications are accepted on a quarterly basis. The funding provider has recently announced the following deadlines for 2013: 5 March 2013; 7 May 2013; 10 July 2013.
