Sustainable Communities Fund



The aim of the fund is to strengthen the well-being and sustainability of communities within the National Park.

The fund is currently supporting projects that:

  • Enhance the cultural heritage of the New Forest
  • Conserve the biodiversity of the National Park
  • Raise awareness of why the New Forest is a special place
  • Provide opportunities to engage people with the National Park
  • Support the provision of local food and goods
  • Reduce carbon emissions in the National Park
  • Provide sustainable transport options including cycling facilities

For projects requesting up to £2,000 we can provide up to 100 per cent of project costs.
