Funding for Nature-based projects in East Cambs

East Cambridgeshire District Council has made available £100,000 to fund community nature-based projects. Known as the “Pride of Place” Grant, this 100% grant funding is to help local East Cambridgeshire communities to create, tidy up or enhance somewhere special in their community, that will benefit the natural environment. Grants are on a first come first served basis, subject to terms and conditions.

The projects must enhance the natural environment; result in a sustainable increase in local biodiversity; and/or enhance or create new, and predominantly natural, public open spaces.


Applicants must be a non-profit group or organisation (including schools) based in East Cambridgeshire or benefiting East Cambridgeshire residents, or be a Parish Council in East Cambridgeshire.

Applicants must meet certain conditions that include a written constitution or mission statement; have an elected committee or a representative steering group and have a Safeguarding Policy and an Equal Opportunity Policy or equivalent.
