Liverpool City Region: Community Environment Fund 2024

Liverpool City Region Mayor Steve Rotheram has announced a third year of funding for his Community Environment Fund.

Green projects from across the Liverpool City Region can now apply for funds of up to £30,000 for initiatives that encourage long-term behavioural change, while improving the city region’s environment and safeguarding its green spaces.

The fund has already supported 92 local environmental projects including community gardens, bikes for veterans, beekeeping and food growing initiatives.

This year, the Combined Authority is working with community fundraising platform Spacehive, to give projects the opportunity to crowdfund for their transformative initiatives.

The crowdfunding nature means that with support from Spacehive, individuals, businesses, and organisations can also pledge funds towards the projects in addition to the Community Environment Fund, allowing further engagement with the local communities that will benefit from the schemes.

So far, the Community Environment Fund has seen more than 750 people across the city region volunteer time to deliver projects creating 15,000 m2 of new habitat, planting 30,000 plants and trees and producing over 8,000 kg of sustainable food.
