New grants scheme approved

 Groups in Weymouth can apply for funding for projects which specifically tackle the climate and ecological emergency, thanks to Weymouth Town Council. 

The Environment and Services Committee agreed the new grants scheme on Wednesday 6th March. In total, £10,000 is up for grabs, and groups can apply for funding of between £500 and £2,500 to support their initiatives. Examples of what the grants can cover include: 

Cllr Ryan Hope, Chair of Environment and Services Committee, said: “The new grants can be used to encourage better biodiversity, such as tree planting or sowing wildflowers, and supports Weymouth Town Council’s commitment to tackling the climate and ecological emergency. Now the new scheme is up and running, I would encourage community and voluntary groups in Weymouth to apply for the funds to help make the town an even cleaner, greener place to live.”  

 More details, including how groups can access the application form is available on Weymouth Town Council’s website.  

Applications can be made now, and groups will find out if they have been successful after the committee resumes in May.
