FCC Communities Foundation – Community Action Fund

The FCC Community Action Fund provides grants of between £2,000 and £100,000 to not-for-profit organisations for amenity projects eligible under Object D of the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF).

The Fund supports the provision, maintenance or improvement of community facilities.

Only applications for projects sited within 10 miles of an eligible FCC Environment waste facility can be accepted, you can check if you are located near an eligible site by clicking Apply and completing the pre-application eligibility check.

We can only accept applications from the following types or organisations:

  • Registered Charity which operates a community facility
  • A Church or Parochial Church Council
  • A Parish or Town Council or a Management Committee or User Association acting on behalf of a Parish or Town Council
  • A Local Authority
  • A CASC Registered Sports Club

The FCC Community Action Fund is oversubscribed and we limit the types projects we will fund and what we will pay for. To help you plan your application please download and read our Guide for Applicants or click on Apply and follow the pre-application eligibility check.

All our grants require applicants to secure a contributing third party (CTP) payment. This is a very specific payment required to be paid to the landfill operator and should not be confused with match funding. Click the link above or download the guidance to learn more.

  • 2022-3 Round opens 22 June 2022 and closes at 5.00pm on 7 September 2022
  • 2022-4 Round opens 21 September 2022 and closes at 5.00pm on 7 December 2022
