Community Environment Fund

The Community Environment Fund was launched in October 2023 by West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA). The Community Environment Fund has £1m of grant funding available from the Government’s Commonwealth Games Legacy Enhancement Fund to support communities in delivering initiatives that improve the environment and people’s lives.

Approximately 30 small grants of up to £25,000 and 5 large grants of up to £100,000 will be awarded
for projects under the following project themes:

  • Natural environment – to protect, restore and enhance nature and wildlife.
  • Circular economy – to reduce waste and keep resources and materials in use for
    as long as possible.
  • Climate adaptation – to make communities more resilient and prepared for the
    impacts of climate change.
  • Access to green space – to provide better access to and community use of green
    space for health and wellbeing – similar to the existing Community Green Grants
  • Environment awareness – to improve knowledge of environment issues and
    support behaviour change.
