‘Get Yer Green Grants ‘ere!’

Published: 11 October 2022

Deal Town Council's Green Grants are now open for applications.

The pilot scheme will run for a year from October 2022 and the first round of submissions need to be in by Monday 14 November. The second round will close on Tuesday 31 January 2023.

The grants are available to businesses, schools and organisations that have projects to benefit our environment, biodiversity and well-being of all that call the town home.

Environment Committee Chairman Cllr Chris Turner said: "We're really excited about being able to offer people the chance to bring their ideas to tackle climate change to life.

"Taking care of our environment is something we have to tackle together and every project, no matter how big or small, will make a difference.

“From litter picking equipment, sustainable gardens and planting, wildlife projects creating avenues for nature, bins, packaging, performance art, there are no boundaries to the imagination.

“Our key criteria is the project must make a positive difference, keeping nature and climate change at the forefront of our minds.”

Grants of up to £1,000 can be applied for and learn more at www.deal.gov.uk/grants
