Biffa Award – Rebuilding Biodiversity
Aims/priorities: Grants are available to not-for-profit
organisations for community projects that deliver a direct improvement to biodiversity near landfill sites in
England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Rebuilding Biodiversity grants are available to protect and enhance our environment so that it can adapt to threats such as climate change. Biffa Award will ask applicants to submit a list of habitat types and species being conserved or protected via their project. Preference will be given to projects that have a strong element of public access or inclusion, such as volunteer involvement.
Preference will be given to projects that apply for their total costs or projects that have already secured the majority of match funding needed to deliver the project. Applicants are required to find a third party contributor for 10% of the amount being applied for.
Grant amount: Grants of between £10,000 – £75,000 are available
Application process: The application process is in two stages:
 Stage one: The deadline for expression of interest forms is one month prior to the stage two
application deadline, to be considered at the Board meeting
 Stage two: Full applications are then considered by the Biffa Award Board.
Deadline: 13 August 2018
