Climate Challenge Fund (CCF)

The CCF is part of the Scottish Government Sustainable Action Fund and is administered by Keep Scotland Beautiful.  Since 2008 CCF grants have provided over £46 million in funding for 563 projects run by Scottish community groups. These groups have worked with their communities to run projects that have reduced their carbon footprint, helping to tackle climate change as well as making community improvements and creating employment and training opportunities.

Applications to the current round can come from communities that have previously been supported and from new communities.

The CCF can support a wide range of activities to help communities reduce their carbon emissions.  A proportion of the funding is intended to be made available to projects run by and for young people as the Junior CCF. Grants of up to £150,000 per annum are available.
