Small Habitats Grants Programme
Through delivery of the ERDF Small Habitats Grants Programme we are enabling a greener GBSLEP. Through the programme eligible organisations from across the GBSLEP area will be able to deliver green and blue infrastructure improvements at a smaller scale. The overall aim of the programme is to improve 20 hectares of land and habitat improvement.
Who can apply?
To apply for a grant from the Habitats Grants Programme your organisation must be one of the following:
• Statutory organisation
• Not for profit organisation
• Community or voluntary organisation
• Parish or Town Council
• Business, if the land is open to public all year round
• Schools, if the land is open to public all year round
Not eligible for this particular opportunity? Contact the GBSLEP Growth Hub to see how else we can help you access grants, funding and other business support. All of our services are fully funded so there is no cost to your businesses. All our advice is impartial and aimed to help businesses grow.
To be eligible for a grant the land that your project is improving should be located in the GBSLEP (Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership) area, although your organisation can be based elsewhere.
The GBSLEP is made up of the following areas:
Birmingham, Solihull, Cannock, East Staffs, Lichfield, Tamworth, Wyre Forest, Redditch and Bromsgrove.
Application forms are available from firstname.lastname@example.org or by ringing 0121 704 60 24
The fund will close every two months. The next deadline for applications will be at the end of May 2021 and then every two months after that until all the fund has been allocated. Please contact the Small Grants Team for an application and to check that there is funding still available.
Evaluation of bids
Bids will be evaluated by the Small Habitats Grants Decision Making Panel soon after each closing date. Applicants will be told how their applications are progressing.
