We are pleased to launch this year’s grants programme. We have a total of £10,000, and we would welcome bids from around £500 up to £3,000 – if your project can only happen with more than that, let us know and we will look at what is possible. The deciding panel will allocate the available grant in the best way possible.

The closing date is 9am on Monday 3 July 2017. We will then invite applicants in to talk to us briefly about the proposal. We then hope to make decisions within two weeks.

The bids must to be for projects that will reduce carbon, in e.g. transport, energy efficiency, renewable energy, reuse and recycling, local food growing. They should demonstrate additionality – i.e. not paying for something that’s happening anyway.

Bids should include costings, timetable, estimated benefits carbon-wise and how they will be monitored; and if appropriate, if and how the project will be maintained beyond the lifetime of the grant.

Spend has to be by end March (at least, an invoice provided for materials etc.) with an option for part-payment earlier if needed to buy materials etc.

Successful bids will be required to notify of any key dates (when works are taking place eg), provide photos and brief reports, and attend a meeting of the Forum in early 2018 to give a progress report.

We will seek to publicise successful projects. We will encourage bidding organisations to join 4020 Haringey Climate Forum.

If you are interested please e-mail haringey4020@haringey.gov.uk for an application form.
