Community groups in Greater Manchester and West Yorkshire can get their hands on £10,000 grants to help make their neighbourhoods greener.
Community groups in Greater Manchester and West Yorkshire are invited to apply for one of two £10,000 grants to help make their neighbourhoods greener, thanks to a partnership between Community Forest Trust and TD Direct Investing.
After the success of the inaugural TD Green Streets grant programme in 2015, the two organisations have again joined forces to support more projects across the regions.
Projects could include:
- Shade tree planting
- Urban orchards
- Rain gardens
- Tree care training programmes
- Your own innovative idea!
TD Green Streets funding recipients are selected through a community engagement and proposal development process. Agencies, community partners and local authorities are invited to work with CFT to develop outline proposals for projects that demonstrate the use of innovative approaches to urban forestry to address challenges specific to the community. The CFT will support delivery of the final two projects selected to receive funding.
The deadline to submit a proposal is January 8, 2016. The two projects selected to receive funding will be announced in March 2016 and will be delivered in partnership with the Community Forest Trust through 2016.
Contact Hilary Wood on (0161) 872 1660 (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information and to discuss your idea. Help is available for communities to develop their ideas into an application.
2015 TD Green Streets Grant Recipients
Earlier this year two communities were selected to receive the UK’s first TD Green Streets grants, following its launch in 2014. As a result, 12 new community orchards will be created on Green Spaces within the neighbourhoods managed by Southway Housing Trust, and the Cardinal Estate in Beeston in Leeds will benefit from 15 large street trees greening its central areas.
