Please note that the application deadline has now passed and we are no longer accepting applications for the Green Recovery Fund. However there is still time to apply for our Tree Planting Grant Scheme and Woodland Creation Planning Fund.
We want to support a Green Recovery where people are taking and inspiring action to address the global climate emergency and nature crisis. This also presents an opportunity to support our communities, land managers and businesses to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, as there are many things we all will be doing differently. The connection that many of us have with our local environment and community is now even stronger.
Our top priority for the Green Recovery Fund in 2021/22 is assisting all our stakeholders to deliver local actions that help address the global climate emergency and nature crisis. Helping to create a healthier and more resilient natural environment is mutually beneficial for nature and people.
Individuals, businesses, land managers, public bodies and constituted voluntary/community groups or charities can all apply. Applicants do not need to be based within the National Park, provided that the project is delivered within the National Park.
In 2020/2021, we offered 11 agreements totalling £94,070.22.

Please note, this is a highly competitive scheme with a limited budget and you may not receive 100% of your requested funding.
