Grants of between £5k – £20k (small grants) and £20k – £50k (medium grants) are available. There are two strands to the grants programme:
- Community Tree Planting Grants, to support community groups to plant trees and help improve access to nature through increasing and maintaining London’s Tree Canopy cover.
- Community Green Space Grants, to give community groups and local people the chance to design and create new spaces, and improve existing spaces, by providing grants, advice and support.
The deadlines for the first round of the two strands are as follows:
- Community Tree Planting Grants: deadline 29 September (just under one week), with decisions expected end of October for activities between November 2017 and February 2018;
- Community Green Space Grants: deadline 20 October, with decisions expected November/December 2017 and delivery between January 2018 and January 2019.
