Fife Community Climate Grants – Seed and Development Fund


The Seed and Development Fund is open to any Fife community group who would like to start up a climate project or build their capacity to deliver climate action locally.

Funding can be used by groups to start up a new project, take forward existing plans, or to increase their capacity to take climate action.

  • Project Start Up: Groups can use the Seed and Development Fund to start up a new climate action project. For example, to set up a community fridge, community garden or a tool library. It can also be used to take forward existing climate action plans. The fund can be used as match funding for climate projects.
  • Project Development: The Fund can be used to develop climate action plans for your community, for example to carry out feasibility studies or pay consultancy fees.
  • Building Capacity: The Fund can be used to build your group’s capacity to deliver climate action. This could include training costs that address a learning need; website development; volunteer expenses; utilities or running costs; or a vital piece of equipment.

Fife Communities Climate Action Network (FCCAN) administer this funding as part of the Fife Climate Hub project and in partnership with Climate Action Fife.
