Community organisations who want a share of a £165000 fund to help make Liverpool a greener city are being urged to get their applications in soon.

The money is part of the Merseyside Recycling & Waste Authority and Veolia Community Fund.

It has been made available for communities and organisations who can help reduce household waste and encourage recycling and the deadline for applications is Sunday March 20.

Chairperson of Merseyside Recycling & Waste Authority, Tony Concepcion, said: “We know that there are a lot of communities concerned about climate change and sustainable living.

“Giving groups the opportunity to get involved in looking after their environment can only bring benefits to all.”

Successful applicants can be awarded up to £30,000 for schemes which operate across all six districts in Merseyside and Halton, and between £1000 and £8,000 for projects which work solely at one local authority level.

Previous Community Funds projects have included cookery clubs to help improve people’s diets, recycling guidebooks and restoring old furniture.

Successful projects should receive the funding by mid May 2022. They will have ten months to deliver their schemes by March 2023.

The application and guidance documents can be found here.
