Focus of fund/fund aims:

Restoration Grants (Round 1) - 25 June 2021. Discovery Grants - tba
The Nature for Climate Peatland Grant Scheme (NCPGS) provides funding to restore peatlands in the uplands and lowlands of England. It is a competitive grant scheme that will run until 2025.
The scheme is open to environmental groups, local authorities, charities, public bodies, individual landowners and organisations.
Natural England is looking for landscape scale applications that work to restore the whole hydrological unit of a peatland. This is likely to involve a number of sites and landowners, so applications from partnerships are encouraged.
Two types of grant are available:
Restoration grants – to fund landscape scale restoration work on degraded peatlands
Discovery grants – to support applicants to gather the information they will need to apply for a restoration grant in future rounds
