Grants are available for not-for-profit organisations in qualifying areas of England for physical improvement to community facilities, such as village halls, public parks, sports facilities, historic buildings and structures.
Grants up to a maximum of £20,000 are available. Applications are only accepted towards projects with a total cost of £20,000 or less.
The Smaller Projects Fund is part of SUEZ Communities Trust’s (previously known as the SITA Trust) Landfill Communities Fund.
Landfill site operators can collect a tax for every tonne of waste that goes into one of their sites. A proportion of this tax can be allocated to the Landfill Communities Fund to fund community and environmental improvement projects. SUEZ Communities Trust receives its funding from the waste management company, SITA Recycling and Recovery UK, which owns landfill sites across the UK.
