The Water Environment Grant Scheme
Earlier this week, Defra, Natural England and the Environment Agency launched a new £27million scheme, to improve England’s water environment. Environment Minister Thérèse Coffey said, that the new Water Environment Grant scheme (which will provide £9 million each year for the next three years) “Offers a fantastic opportunity for applicants from across the country to secure funding for projects to enhance the environment, boost wildlife and benefit their rural community”.
The scheme is open to eligible applicants until 11 May 2018. Grants will be determined by the Environment Agency and Natural England and funding will be awarded in August 2018. Successful applicants will be expected to start their projects before March 2019, with completion dates of March 2021. Find out more here.
