The Sustainable Development Fund is open to business and individuals as well as community groups. It is a grant scheme that supports projects that bring environmental, social and economic benefits to the AONB. This is a simple and open scheme that seeks to foster innovative solutions to the challenges we face in the AONB.
Please consider looking at other National and Regional grants schemes on our 'Other Funding Opportunities' page.
You will find application forms and guidance notes within these pages to assist you with your application. You can also look at examples of the type of projects for which grants have been awarded.
In order to make a successful application, you will have to put some time and a good deal of thought into your application. Funding is highly competitive and there are more applicants than there are funds to go around each year. If you have a project that you would love to see come to fruition, and would like assistance with your bid, then please get in touch with us for a chat.
