Main Grants Scheme

The Main Grants Scheme is for Community, Heritage or Biodiversity projects in England and Wales that require £20,000-50,000 from Viridor Credits.

Main Grant applications are considered by our regional Steering Groups and must start drawing down funding within six months of the date of Offer Letter and complete draw down within 12 months.

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

How do I apply?

Check the availability of funding in your area by using our Postcode Checker and submit the Stage One Form to one of our Grants Co-ordinators. You will receive a response within five working days confirming whether your project meets Viridor Credits' Eligibility Criteria.

Once you have received confirmation of eligibility from Viridor Credits, please read the Guidance Notes for Applicants prior to completing Stage Two of the online application form. Stage Two must be submitted prior to the closing date for your region.
