Up to £50,000 available; apply by 19 May
Applications are open for grants of up to £50,000 from the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) for natural flood management projects in England.
Eligible projects must show that they reduce flood risk, or coastal erosion, to homes; improve habitats and increase biodiversity; contribute to research and development of natural flood management techniques and interventions; and support and develop partnerships working with and between communities.
Initial project construction should be completed by 31 March 2021.
The grants are part of the department’s catchment-based approach, which encourages collaboration and partnerships between organisations around river catchment areas. For further information on natural flood management, contact Defra at firstname.lastname@example.org.
