The Landfill Disposals Tax Communities Scheme is a new Welsh Government funding programme that will be managed by Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA). The scheme will support local community and environmental projects in areas affected by the disposal of waste to landfill.
The fund will be open to any organisation for projects focusing on one or more of the following themes:
biodiversity - conservation and promotion of a specific species or a specific habitat where it naturally occurs
waste minimisation and the diversion of waste from landfill - promote awareness and best practice to reduce the amount of waste produced
wider environmental enhancements - bring wider community benefit through improving quality of place
Grants of between £5,000 and £49,999 will be available for projects that meet scheme criteria, with one larger project of national significance also being funded each year.
The closing date for applications is 26 July 2018.
