South Hams District Council is joining forces with Crowdfunder to encourage and support projects and ideas that will help the district to tackle the climate emergency.
The South Hams Climate Action and Biodiversity Fund is offering match funding of up to £10,000 for projects within the district that align with the Council’s Climate Change and Biodiversity Strategy. It’s hoped that the match-funding will provide crucial revenue to environmental projects that will help to make the South Hams become carbon neutral, improve its biodiversity and create climate resilient communities.
To apply for funding, you need a crowdfunding project. You must first demonstrate strong local support by getting to 25 per cent of your crowdfunding target from a minimum of 25 unique supporters before being considered. If you receive a match-funding pledge from the South Hams Climate Action and Biodiversity Fund, but the amount does not take you to your crowdfunding target, you must continue crowdfunding until you hit the target.
Projects must support South Hams District Council’s Climate Change and Biodiversity Strategy in one of the following ways to be considered:
The Council will consider pledging towards crowdfunding targets as follows:
