About the Climate Challenge Fund

The CCF is a Scottish Government grants programme which is managed and administered by environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful. The CCF provides funding and support for community groups to tackle climate change through community-led projects that reduce carbon emissions.

CCF grants of up to £150,000 per organisation, per year, are available for projects taking place between 1 April 2018 and 31 March 2020*. Development Grants of up to £1,500 are also available to help community-led organisations identify and scope out potential climate action projects - with the aim of enabling the organisation to apply for a CCF grant or to another funder.

To date, the CCF has awarded grants totalling £85.8 million supporting a range of successful projects, including energy efficiency improvements to community-owned buildings, home energy efficiency advice, lower carbon travel options and community growing initiatives, plus schemes that help reduce waste and move Scotland further towards a more circular economy.

The deadline to submit an Expression of Interest, the first stage of the application process for a CCF Grant, is 5pm on 28 August 2017. Applications for Development Grants are invited monthly until further notice. Further information is available on the CCF website.

*For 2018-2019 some CCF Grant Recipients (with projects involving waste and circular economy activities, or installation of energy efficient measures in community-owned buildings) will be match funded through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The ERDF comes from the European Structural and Investment Fund.
