Grants are available to constituted, not-for-profit groups with environmental and community projects that are located near a qualifying Veolia site in England.

The Veolia Environmental Trust, originally known as the Onyx Environmental Trust, was set up in 1997 under the Landfill Communities Fund (formerly the Landfill Tax Credit Scheme) and awards monies derived from landfill tax to support a wide range of environmentally focused projects throughout England.

The Trust is a charity and an Environmental Body registered under the Landfill Tax Regulations established to protect, preserve and improve the environment for the benefit of the public.

The funding is for capital improvement projects at a single site that fall in one of the following categories:

  • Community buildings and rooms.
  • Outdoor spaces.
  • Play and recreation.
  • Biodiversity projects.

Grants of between £10,000 and £75,000 are available under the following conditions:

  • The maximum project cost should be less than £250,000 (including VAT and professional costs).
  • Projects are required to secure at least 10% of the total project costs.
  • Successful applicants will need to pay 10% of the awarded amount to the landfill operator from a third party contributor.
