Funding now available to give community projects a boost

Does your community group or environmental project need funding to get a new project off the ground in Birmingham? If so, Veolia’s EnviroGrant Scheme could help to get things up and running.

Veolia is urging not-for-profit projects and groups that make a positive difference in their communities, to apply for funding before the end of November 2017.
Toby Terlet, General Manager for Veolia in Birmingham, commented: “Every year our EnviroGrant scheme gives out £10,000 to local community projects that make a difference to the lives of people in Birmingham. Applications close at the end of November and we’d encourage any local not-for-profit organisations in need of funding to apply.

“Grants up to £1,000 can be awarded to help local groups in Birmingham improve community areas, develop school facilities, provide outdoor education, and even launch wildlife projects. By providing new facilities or improving existing spaces, projects awarded a grant should improve the quality of life for the local community and leave a lasting legacy”

Castle Bromwich Hall & Gardens Trust, Friends of Sparkhill Park, Our lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School, Stechford in Bloom and Summerfield Residents Association all received grants in the last round to help get their community projects underway.  
Toby said: “Every project funded through the EnviroGrant scheme works to help improve people’s quality of life by making the local environment and community a better place to live and visit.”

To apply for EnviroGrant funding, submit your application by the end of November 2017. Apply here or call 0121 680 2000 for more information.
