2023 Deadlines for FCC Community Action Fund

Funding for not-for-profit groups to provide, maintain or improve public amenities within a 10-mile radius of eligible FCC Environment waste facilities in England.

The FCC Community Action Fund provides grants to organisations under Object D of the Landfill Communities Fund (LFC) to benefit local communities in the vicinity of a landfill site. There will be four application windows in 2023.

The following organisations may apply for grants of between £2,000 and £100,000:

  • Registered charities which operate a community facility.
  • Churches or Parochial Church Councils.
  • Parish or Town Councils or Management Committees or User Associations acting on behalf of Parish or Town Councils.
  • Local Authorities.

The funding can be used for projects with a maximum cost of £500,000 which involve provision, maintenance or improvement of public amenities. All project sites must be open and accessible for the general public without any limit or restrictions on use (or with reasonable access costs) in place.

Projects must be based within 10 miles of eligible FCC Environment waste facilities across England. Groups should use the FCC Communities Foundation calculator to determine if their project is in an eligible location.

The next deadline to apply is 8 March 2023.
