SFC Veg Cities Campaign Grants Open

03 May 2018

Sustainable Food Cities Network members will be able to apply for Veg Cities Campaign Grants from 3rd May 2018.

We will offer grants of up to £5,000 each and we strongly encourage match funding. The majority of funds should be for person time but it may also be possible to include some third party costs (e.g. campaign materials, publicity). Applications are more likely to be successful where match-funding has been secured. We will require a commitment letter from any match funding source(s) as part of this application. To be successful you will need to demonstrate how you will make a difference to the availability and consumption of veg locally. The campaign handbook will support you through the application.

This is the final SFC Campaign grants round in Phase 2 of our programme and we expect there will be a high number of applications for a limited number of grants.
