• Sita Trust's Enriching Nature Grant Funding

    Environmental organisations, voluntary organisations, charities and community groups are able to apply to the SITA Trust’s Enriching Nature Programme for funding to support Biodiversity projects around any licensed and registered landfill site in England.
    To be eligible for funding projects must have been identified as a priority by Regional and Local Biodiversity Fora in England. The Enriching Nature programme was devised in partnership with Regional Biodiversity Fora across England.
    The Enriching Nature Programme has two funding levels:

    • The Small Fund which provides grants of up to £25,000 for projects that meet national and regional priorities for species and habitats, but local priorities will also be considered
    • The Large Fund which provides grants of up to £75,000 for projects that meet national priorities for species and habitats.

    Previous grants awarded under this programme include:

    • A grant to the Suffolk Wildlife Trust for Restoration and management of valuable heathland, which will benefit acid grassland, silver studded blue, nightjar and woodlark
    • A grant to the RSPB to manage upland heath and blanket bog at Geltsdale for hen harrier, black grouse, skylark and reed bunting.

    The deadline for expressions of interest is the 6th December 2013.
