Veolia Environmental Trust Accepting Applications for Projects Starting in 2019

Funding for constituted not-for-profit organisations that are within five miles of an operating Veolia site in England.

Veolia Environmental Trust offers grants of between £10,000 and £75,000 for capital improvement projects at a single site with discrete start and end dates. Match funding of at least 20% is required, and applicants requesting grants of £40,000 or more require a Third Party Contribution.

Projects should fall under one of the following categories:

  • Community buildings and rooms, including community centres, village halls, community spaces within religious buildings, and Scout or Girl Guiding buildings.
  • Outdoor Spaces, including public parks, nature reserves, community gardens, footpaths, bridleways and cycle-paths.
  • Play and recreation, including play areas, skateparks, Multi Use Games Areas, sports grounds, pavilions and changing rooms.

To be eligible, projects must:

  • Be open to the wider general public for at least 104 days a year without any limit or unreasonable restrictions of use.
  • Have a total cost of under £250,000, including VAT and professional costs.
  • Have already secured at least 20% of the total cost.
  • Have secured all permissions (eg, planning).
  • Be completed within 12 months.

Constituted not-for-profit organisations can apply as long as their project is located within five miles of a Veolia Environmental Services facility. This could be a landfill site, Energy Recovery Facility or Materials Recycling Facility.

There is no deadline for starting the process of applying for a grant; however, each funding application phase for both Stage 1 and Stage 2 is made available quarterly following the end of the previous phase.

The next phases for Stage 1 applications are:

  • Between 1 June 2018 and 30 August 2018 for projects taking place between 7 January 2019 and 25 March 2019.
  • Between 31 August 2018 and 10 January 2019 for projects taking place between 26 March 2019 and 18 June 2010.
