Through their Action Leeds Community Microgrants and Small Grants programmes, charities, community groups, and other not-for-profit organisations in the area can apply for grants of up to £1,000 or £5,000 respectively.
The funding is aimed at supporting neighbourhood-based initiatives that promote reducing carbon, nature-friendly activity, and social justice. The types of activities that could be funded include community composting schemes, clothing swaps, volunteer-led cycling schemes, community gardens, green energy feasibility studies, and repair and recycle hubs.
Eligibility for the Microgrants programme is for organisations with an annual income of up to £35,000, while eligibility for the Small Grants programme is for organisations with an annual income of up to £150,000. The deadline for applications is 12pm on the 28th April 2023.
