The deadline for applications to a £110,000 waste prevention community fund is just one week away.
Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA) and its contractor Veolia are behind the Community Fund which looks to find the best ideas for reducing, reusing and recycling household waste across Merseyside and Halton.
The £110,000 is to be split, with £40,000 made available for up to three region wide projects, with a maximum award of £20,000 for any one project. The remaining funding will be awarded at individual district level for up to £10,000 per project.
The closing date for applications is Friday 13th June 2014.
Community and Voluntary Sector groups, not for profit social enterprises and schools in Merseyside and Halton can apply for the Community Funding. Applicants must satisfy a list of ten criteria – including engaging residents, promoting economic growth and permanently changing consumer waste habits.
