The National Lottery Community Fund (NLCF) is launching the above fund as the level of concern over climate change continues to rise.

The funded activities are expected to differ depending on their location, but they will have one thing in common: the ability to deliver high impact community-led climate action. This includes in areas such as sustainable energy, sustainable transport, consumption, food and protecting and regenerating spaces and habitats.

The Climate Action Fund is expected to open for applications in Autumn 2019 with the first awards being announced ‘well within the first half of 2020’. The funding criteria of the programme will be announced later this year.
