Sustainable CommunityThe Welsh Government is setting in place revised grant arrangements to support implementation of the Natural Resources Policy, making clearer links between Wales' natural resources and well-being. The scheme will be administered and managed by the Environment and Communities Division on behalf of wider policy interests and will focus on supporting cross-sector collaborative projects that will achieve a broad range of environmental, economic, social and cultural benefits.

Supporting the delivery of  Prosperity for All: the national strategy and the Natural Resources Policy, the scheme has 3 themes of action under which grant applications can be made:

  • Developing, regenerating and broadening access to sustainable green infrastructure
  • Improving the quality of the urban and rural built environment
  • Developing resilient ecological networks and nature based solutions

The grant is open to a wide range of organisations working in a collaborative way to deliver activity under the themes of action and will provide both revenue and capital funding to support delivery.

"Interested organisations are encouraged to explore potential collaborations and project ideas via our ENRaW Grant group on Yammer. Please spread the word about the new grant and let your contacts know that to join the discussion on Yammer they will need to email our mailbox: EnvironmentGrants@gov.wales via their business email and we can send them an invite to the online group."

Further information about the scheme, including the guidance and application form can be obtained from our website: Enabling Natural Resources and Well-Being in Wales 2019-2023.

The deadline for applications is 03 December 2018 with view to grant funding being made available from commencing early in the 2019-20 financial year.
