FUNDING of £10,000 has been made available for people within Bishopston, Cotham and Redland to set up projects as part of Bristol Green Capital 2015.
The Green Capital projects fund aims to help neighbourhoods create a happier, healthier and greener city.
The BCR partnership will be awarding grants to projects which will have a lasting impact on the community and can show long-term sustainability, as well as encourage young people to get involved in green issues.
A limit has not been set on the size of any one project, so proposals for both big and small ideas are welcome.
The key themes for Bristol Green Capital 2015 are energy, resources, transport, nature and food, although related topics may be considered.
A Green Capital 2015 grant workshop will be taking place on October 8, 7.30-9.30pm at Redland Park URC meeting rooms.
The workshop will provide an opportunity for potential grant applicants to share and gather support for their ideas, as well as get help with the application process.
Funding application deadline is November 13. Once all applications are in, the partnership will decide on which projects to award the grant.
Successful applications will be announced in January 2015.
Guidance notes, as well as details of the workshop, are available at: www.bcrnp.org.uk/project-funding-opportunities/green-capital-grants/
