The 40:20 HCF community grants programme 2016-17 is now live.

 

We welcome bids up to £3,000 to a grants fund totalling £9,500. The deciding panel will allocate the available grant in the best way possible. The closing date is 9am on Monday 12 September. We will hope to make decisions within a week.

The bids must to be for projects that will reduce carbon, in eg transport, energy efficiency, renewable energy, reuse and recycling, local food growing. They should demonstrate additionality – ie 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, how the project will be maintained in future.

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.

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