The Small Grants - Environment is a standalone scheme providing a maximum of £7,500 funding per window for Capital Works Projects. Set lists of Capital Works are available to support the delivery of beneficial environmental outcomes under the following four themes:

  • Carbon
  • Water
  • Landscape and pollinators
  • Hedgerow creation

This round of Small Grants - Environment will address the theme of Hedgerow creation.

Land managers and farming businesses are selected for Small Grants - Environment following the submission of an Expression of Interest (EoI) to the Welsh Government. The EoI is scored on its ability to contribute towards delivering the aims of the Small Grants - Environment theme. Those with the ability to deliver the most towards the objectives of the theme are scored highest. (See Section E Selection)

Please read this Small Grants – Environment rules and guidance document before submitting an Expression of Interest.

Any changes will be publicised via the Welsh Government website, GWLAD online and, where necessary, we will contact you directly.
