Large Grants Scheme

The Large Grants Scheme is for Community, Heritage or Biodiversity projects in England and Wales that require £50,000-100,000 from Viridor Credits. Due of the value of the scheme, it is extremely competitive.

Large Grant applications are considered by Viridor Credits' Board of Trustees and must start drawing down funding within six months of the date of Offer Letter and complete draw down within 18 months.

Viridor Credits supports Community and heritage Large Grant projects located within 10 miles of an active Viridor Landfill site, and Biodiversity projects within 10 miles of any licenced landfill site.
