Veolia Environmental Trust

Grants are available to constituted, not-for-profit groups with environmental and community projects that are located near a qualifying Veolia site in England.

Grants of between £10,000 and £75,000 are available under the following conditions:

The maximum project cost should be less than £250,000 (including VAT and professional costs).

Projects are required to secure at least 10% of the total project costs.

Successful applicants will need to pay 10% of the awarded amount to the landfill operator from a third party contributor.

The funding is for capital improvement projects at a single site that fall in one of the following categories:

  • Community buildings and rooms.
  • Outdoor spaces.
  • Play and recreation.
  • Biodiversity projects.

The next window for Stage 1 applications is between 1 March 2019 and 30 May 2019 for projects taking place between 18 September 2019 and 6 January 2020.

There are four funding rounds each year. Stage 1 applications will be accepted between:

  • 1 March 2019 and 30 May 2019 for projects taking place between 18 September 2019 and 6 January 2020.
  • 31 May 2019 and 29 August 2019 for projects taking place between 7 January 2020 and 16 March 2020.

The Trust reports that it is oversubscribed with applications for funding, and therefore it is a very competitive process. The chances of success are improved however, if the application clearly explains why the general public need the project to go ahead, includes letters of support from a wide range of potential project beneficiaries, and the project clearly meets the funding criteria.
