Funding Scheme

The Derbyshire Environmental Trust (DET) is again repeating it’s own funding scheme in 2020/21. The Trust has yet to confirm the amount available for distribution but this is not expected to exceed £40,000. In view of the Coronavirus pandemic there is a preference for awarding a larger number of small to medium sized grants, thereby benefitting a greater number of organisations, rather than one or two larger awards. The Scheme has operated annually since 2016/17 and a decision about future years will be made in due course.

The timetable is anticipated to be:

July 2020 onwards – Publicise availability of funding, advise potential applicants, issue press release and application packs to potential applicants.
28 September 2020 – closing date for submission of applications 
October – November 2020 – DET check / evaluate applications and raise any queries / request further details
27 November 2020 – final date for confirming outstanding details eg match funding, planning permission etc
December 2020 – DET Management Committee meeting to consider applications and make decisions
December 2020 / January 2021 – decisions communicated to applicants
January 2022 – funded projects to be completed


DET reserves the right to vary the above timetable or to not award any funding, depending on circumstances.
