As part of the Green Footprints Challenge, we are offering Green Grants of £500 each for environmentally-focussed community projects across the district of North West Leicestershire.Green grant


In view of the current situation with the Covid 19 virus, we have now suspended this grant scheme until further notice.  All applications that have been submitted and received will in due course be assessed.


These are simple projects that make a big impact and are open to groups and organisations, including parish councils. Match funding of £500 is required; this needs to be cash as opposed to in-kind funding. Therefore your project should have a minimum value of £1000. Projects need to take place within a planned timescale of 12 months.

Examples of what you could apply for:

General environmental improvements; climate change projects; equipment for litter picking and dog fouling; composting; energy efficiency; transport issues; projects for cycling/walking; wildflower meadows; community orchards; hedge planting; recycling.
