South Staffordshire Climate Prize

Climate Prize

Grant funding is now available for local community projects which help to tackle climate change.

There are lots of great things already being done in South Staffordshire to help us adapt to climate change and reduce its impact - but we know our communities have even more great ideas to make a difference locally.

The Climate Prize will be available to support local action as part of our Climate Change Festival.

What is the Climate Prize?

Interested parties, including schools, community groups and mico businesses in South Staffordshire can apply for grant funding of up to £200 to deliver a local project.

Applications will be assessed in April 2022, and the best five applications in each of our five localities will receive funding for their project, and be invited to participate in an award ceremony.

The 25 successful projects will be delivered during 2022, each including a community event. In December 2022, a mini competition will be held and the best projects will receive additional funding to invest back into their climate change activities.

Who can apply?

The prize fund is open to all community groups based in South Staffordshire, including charities, societies, voluntary groups, schools, parish councils, and micro businesses (less than five employees).

What types of project will we fund?

We will accept applications for projects in any of the following categories:

  • Protect, restore and adapt nature
  • Improve air quality
  • Flood risk resilience
  • Reducing waste
  • Climate mitigation measures
