Fifth round of Landfill Disposal Tax Communities scheme now accepting applications for projects beginning from March 2021

A grant funding programme to help communities living within five miles of certain waste transfer stations or landfill sites take action for their local environment.

The Landfill Disposals Tax (LDT) Communities Scheme is a Welsh Government funding programme managed by WCVA. The scheme supports local community and environmental projects in areas affected by the disposal of waste to landfill.

The fifth round of the Landfill Disposal Tax Communities scheme is now accepting applications of grants between £5,000 – £49,999 for projects beginning from March 2021.

A grant may also be awarded to one Nationally Significant project per year with a value of between £50,000 – £250,000.

The closing date for applications is 18 January 2021 at 23:59. Please note there are two separate application forms, one for main grants and one for the nationally significant grant.

The way that applications are submitted is changing – WCVA has listened to funding applicants and in consultation with the sector, has developed a new Multipurpose Application Portal. This new easy to use web platform makes applying for grants through WCVA a much simpler and user-friendly experience.

In order to submit a request for funding, you will need to register with WCVA’s Multipurpose Application Portal (MAP). If you have previously registered with MAP, you can log in by entering your username and password on the home screen.

You can find out further information on how to register and make an application here.
