Biffaward is a national environment fund managed by the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts, which utilises landfill tax credits donated by Biffa Waste Services. Since its inception in 1997, Biffaward has awarded more than £100 million in funding to over 2,000 projects.

Applicants have three months in which to request and complete their expression of interest, before the deadline on 1 July 2011. Entries are then closed for the year.

Successful applicants will then be shortlisted at two other stages during the year, which will include a presentation and then final application, before being unveiled at the annual Biffaward Awards ceremony in 2012.

To discuss the suitability of a project for the Flagship Scheme, and request an application form, applicants should contact the Grants Officer for their region.
