Changes to the Biffa Award eligibility criteria
12 February 2015

With effect from the 1 April 2015, Biffa Award will be bringing in some changes to the eligibility criteria. This is to address the imbalance of funding available and the sizeable number of applications we continue to receive.


The criteria changes will be as follows:

All D and E projects must be within 7 miles of a Biffa operation.  This relates to our Cultural Facilities, Recreation and Community Buildings themes.

All DA projects must be within 15 miles of a Biffa operation.  This relates to our Rebuilding Biodiversity theme.

Applications from organisations are limited to one application per meeting, with a maximum of two applications per annum.

Applications under the Small Grant Scheme will only be considered from organisations with an annual gross income of less than £100,000.

Applications under the Small Grants Scheme will only be considered for projects with a total cost of £15,000.


If you have any queries about these points or your project’s eligibility, please get in touch with a member of the team on 01636 670000 or via
