Greater Manchester Green Spaces Fund
The Greater Manchester Green Spaces Fund will give grants to communities to improve local green spaces or create new ones where they are needed most. To find out more and how to apply visit Following its announcement earlier this year, the £2.6m Greater Manchester Green Spaces Fund is now open to applications, seeking community projects that will make a real difference to their local area. The fund makes small and large grants available for community groups wanting to create new spaces or improve existing ones in their local area, particularly where there is currently poor local access to good quality green space. Projects should improve publicly accessible spaces through physical improvements to make them better places for nature and people. These projects could take place in parks, community gardens, streets, schools, housing estates, canals, streams, rivers and existing nature reserves. Here’s some ways the fund could be used: Improving existing or creating new accessible greenspace for people and/or wildlife Permanently greening streets Creating new permanent parklets or pocket parks Community gardening and food growing Turning paved over areas to green areas Cleaning up and restoring streams, rivers, canals and ponds
