Since 2005, SDF has funded a wide range of projects that have benefitted the Blackdown Hills AONB.
The fund gives grants of up to £3000 to encourage individuals, community groups, schools and businesses to try to achieve a more sustainable way of living in the Blackdown Hills.
Projects need to show that they have an environmental, social, or economic benefit, and ideally a combination of all three.
To apply for SDF funding, please read the guidance note below and use the checklist to check whether your project meets the criteria. Then complete the application form.
If you're not sure about the criteria or the application process, please contact us for advice.
Email or post your application to the AONB office.
