Alternative Sources of Funding

Some other sources of funding available to projects concerned with sustainable development.

Landfill Communities Fund

The Landfill Communities Fund began in 1996 as the Landfill Tax Credit Scheme to provide funding for community or environmental projects in the vicinity of landfill sites. Companies that run landfill sites are taxed on the amount of waste of which they dispose. They can give a percentage of this tax to community projects through the Landfill Communities Fund and receive a 90 per cent tax credit in return.

National Lottery

Good causes money from the National Lottery, aimed at bringing real improvements to communities: Big Lottery Fund.
