FCC Biodiversity Action Fund
Important information about the FCC Biodiversity Action Fund 2016
It is with regret that the WREN Board is withdrawing the FCC Biodiversity Action Fund 2016 programme with immediate effect.
WREN understands that this will be disappointing news to organizations currently preparing applications but a reduction in LCF funds means WREN must take action now to maintain funding across operating areas in the future.
The WREN Board still wish to support UK biodiversity however this will be done through a single LCF programme, which will encompass all WREN funding themes, details of which will be announced in due course.
Projects funded in previous rounds will continue to be funded through to completion.
About the Biodiversity Action Fund (BAF)
WREN's Biodiversity Action Fund was an annual programme of funding designed to deliver projects under Object DA of the Landfill Communities Fund. It provided funding to projects which supported the expansion, recovery and conservation of UK Priority Habitats through specific improvements.
The programme ran for 7 years during which time grants totaling over £21m helped 100 projects make such a positive impact on UK biodiversity.
