Grants available for community groups to enhance Staffordshire

Projects across Staffordshire are being invited to benefit from funding set up to improve the environment and communities in the county.

The latest round of Envirogrants is now open - and we want to hear why your project should be considered for a £1,000 grant.

Staffordshire’s EnviroGrant scheme is once again being rolled out, to help not-for-profit organisations, community groups, societies and charities improve the communities and environment.

Veolia in partnership with Staffordshire County Council will offer grants of up to £1,000 to help fund the schemes.

Steve Mitchell, Director for Veolia in Staffordshire, said: “The EnviroGrant scheme helps local groups in Staffordshire improve community areas.

 “It is a great opportunity for groups and projects that strive to make Staffordshire a better place to live and visit.

“If there are any groups or projects out there that think they would benefit from our support then we want to hear from them.

“But don’t delay - the closing date is Friday, 11 October 2019. This is your chance to apply for a grant to help leave a lasting legacy for your community in Staffordshire.”


Gill Heath, Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for communities said: “The EnviroGrant Scheme will provide a welcome boost to community groups across Staffordshire and will help to kick-start a range of projects. We’re pleased that Veolia are continuing to support us in this way and is backing Staffordshire communities. I’d urge groups to get in touch and make their applications as soon as possible.”
