Cory Environmental Trust in Britain (CETB) is celebrating its 10th anniversary by offering a one-off £100,000 grant to a local community project.
The Trust was set up a decade ago to distribute money raised from landfill tax to environmental or community organisations within 10 miles of Cory Environmental Limited’s 40 landfill sites. So far it has distributed £10 million to over 250 projects.
Trust Secretary Angela Haymonds said: "I'd really encourage projects which have the local community or environment at the heart of their plans to apply to CETB for funding. This one-off substantial grant is a fantastic opportunity to create a lasting resource. You never know, it could be your town or village celebrating with CETB!"
To be eligible, a project's objectives must match one of the approved Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) criteria. It may include refurbishment of churches or buildings of architectural or historical significance, or general amenity projects, such as improving disabled access or improvements to parks and nature reserves.
Three eligible organisations that apply for the grant will be shortlisted in July. The will then present their proposals to the Trust in September, at which time the winning group will be announced.
The deadline for applications is 19 July 2013.
