Funding available for community waste projects through Climate Challenge Fund

Funding is available for community-led organisations that are interested in supporting their communities to reduce, re-use and recycle waste. 


The Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund is open for expressions of interest, and provides grants and support for community-led organisations to tackle climate change by running projects that reduce local carbon emissions.


Community-led organisations are invited to apply for CCF funding, with grants of up to £150,000 available per organisation, per year for projects taking place between 1 April 2018 and 31 March 2020. For 2018/19 Zero Waste Scotland is making European Regional Development Funding available as match funding for projects that focus on waste and the circular economy.


Development Grants of up to £1,500 are also available to help community-led organisations identify and scope out potential climate action projects. The CCF has supported projects involving energy efficiency improvements to community owned buildings, home energy efficiency advice, lower carbon travel options, community growing initiatives and schemes to tackle waste.
