What's it all about?

This programme is closed for applications

Launched on 27 March 2003, this programme was designed to support community based recycling, reuse, composting, awareness raising and capacity building.

The Fund chose Wales Council for Voluntary Action to deliver £2.65 million worth of grants.

Grants of between £25,000 and £300,000 were available over a maximum of 3 year period and aim to:

  • Increase the amount and range of materials diverted away from final disposal by providing the infrastructure to collect material and establish new waste recycling, reuse and composting projects
  • Increase the numbers of households participating in waste recycling, reuse and composting projects through education, expansion of existing projects and activities to increase the range of materials collected
  • Develop sustainable communities by building on the existing skills base and to provide opportunities for all to participate and increase awareness.

There was no fixed rate of grant, but applicants needed to seek additional funding from other sources.
