Important news for applicants in Scotland
From 1 April 2015 landfill tax generated in Scotland is collected and managed differently and as a result the Scottish Landfill Communities Fund (SLCF) replaced the UK scheme as at that date. There is a two year transition period during which contributions already made must be spent and grants have been provided in Scotland from those funds. However, the last date for applications from Scotland to access those funds was 8 July 2015 and we will no longer accept applications for funding from Scotland under the UK Landfill Communities Fund.
The new new Scottish Landfill Communities Fund, out FCC Scottish Action Fund is now available for online applications.
