Criteria

Criteria met for a ring-fenced fund that a council has created to spend on climate action locally, either in partnership with the council or for other organisations or volunteer and community groups. The fund must fulfill the following criteria:
- The fund is at least £10k in size. Where the overall amount of funding has not been stated, it will be assumed that funds awarding individual grants over £1k in size have a total fund of at least £10k.
- The fund is accessible to community groups, including, where relevant, parish councils.
- The funding has been open to applications at some point since 1st January 2022, in order to include funds released in waves that may not be open at the time of marking.

Clarifications

More general community or environment funds will be included if they specify that climate change and biodiversity/ecological projects will be supported.

This can be a pooled fund between multiple councils.
