The organisation offers funding to projects through the Scottish Landfill Communities Fund (SLCF) and will consider applications across all types of projects included in the SLCF: Land Reclamation, Community Recycling, Public Amenities and Parks, Biodiversity and Historic Buildings.

Charities, community councils, church or community organisations and voluntary groups can apply for funding as long as they are operated on a not-for-profit basis and have a formal constitution and bank account. In addition local authorities can also apply.

Grants ranging from £2000 to £40,000 are available although the available funds are limited.

The next deadline is December 1.
