Funding: FCC Community Action Fund – for provision, maintenance or improvement of public amenities

The FCC Community Action Fund is designed to deliver amenity projects within 10 miles of a FCC Environment landfill site in our operating area, under Object D of the Landfill Communities Fund.
Funding from FCC Communities Foundation is very oversubscribed so we now limit the type of facility we will consider focussing our funding in line with our objectives.
We will accept applications for the provision, maintenance or improvement of the following types of public amenity:

Village Halls and Community Centres
Public Play Areas
Publicly available Multi use games areas, skate parks and BMX tracks
Sport and recreation grounds including pavilions and clubhouses with full public access
Churches – community spaces only
Nature Reserves
Public gardens, parks, country parks and woodlands with at least dawn to dusk access

2019  Round opens on 26 June 2019 and closes at 5.00 pm on 11 September 2019

More details:

The project site must be open and accessible for the general public. It should be somewhere where the general public can go, join or use without any limit or restrictions of use (or with reasonable
access costs) being in place. If your facility is not available every day for the public to use please contact us for advice before applying.

Grants of between £2,000 and £100,000 are available for projects with a maximum total project cost of £500,000 including VAT (if relevant).
