Green Community Grants now available

'Think global and act local’ for your community group to be awarded a pot of up to £3,000. As part of our climate and ecological emergency work, and to encourage meaningful action within the borough, more Green Community Grants are being made available.

The grant scheme is specifically designed to support projects in our community which benefit the environment, as well as Dacorum’s residents. The purpose is to encourage and enable local groups to ‘think global and act local' whilst tackling environmental challenges. This ties in with the objectives of the newly launched Dacorum Climate Action Network.

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 locally 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 £3,000, from a total pot of £20,000.

The Green Community Grant scheme is open for applications until 16 January 2022. Successful projects will be notified in February, with grants being allocated by March.

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, go to our Community litter picks page.
