About the funding

The Partnership Grant Scheme is for not-for-profit organisations that are looking to improve a built or natural environment of regional or national significance.

You must be located within 15 miles of a significant Biffa Group Limited operation or active Biffa Landfill site in England or Northern Ireland.

The Partnership Grants Scheme offers funding to not-for-profit organisations that address one of the following themes:

  • Built Environment: projects should restore, modernise and/or improve facilities such as cultural, heritage or visitor centres. The facility should be inclusive and promote learning, curiosity, and participation to large numbers of visitors on a national scale.
  • Natural Environment: projects should restore and/or improve the environment and the natural systems or habitats that support it. Projects should be working to Biodiversity 2020: A Strategy for England’s Wildlife and Ecosystem Services, its predecessor, or a Local Biodiversity Action Plan.

The funding is to be used for site-based improvement work, not for movable equipment, staff core costs or storage facilities. The majority of costs must be direct capital delivery work.
