Enhancing Communities Programme (UK)

Mon, 03/03/2008

Not for profit organisations, charities and community groups located within ten miles of a SITA UK site that wish to improve the local public amenities are able to apply for funding through the SITA Trust. The SITA Trust distributes funding through the Landfill Tax Credit Scheme (LTCS) and is supported by the waste management company, SITA UK. Up to £25,000 is available for local community improvement projects and grants of up to £150,000 for projects of a regional significance. The types of projects that can be supported include improvements to village halls, the provision of recreation facilities and the repair and restoration of religious or historic buildings (these need to be within ten miles of a SITA site). The next application deadline is 3 March 2008 for the large grants scheme. For further information please visit: www.sitatrust.org.uk/apply/community
