The Nidderdale AONB Countryside Fund

Do you have a great project idea? Are you looking for funding? The Nidderdale Countryside Fund was set up in 2014 to raise and distribute money for local wildlife and heritage projects in Nidderdale AONB. It funds projects that help keep this area of Yorkshire that we love so special.

The fund is open to applications from individuals, organisations and businesses. Up to £2,000 is available per project, although larger projects will be considered in exceptional circumstances. The guidance notes below provide full details to check whether your project is eligible for funding.

Applications can be submitted anytime and are assessed at trustees meetings, which are held at the beginning of January, March, May, July, September and November.
