Important changes in our funding criteria


As less waste is going into landfill sites and the percentage of tax that can be distributed through the Landfill Communities Fund is decreasing, we have had to tighten our eligibility criteria. 

The following changes will come into effect as of 4th May 2017:


We will no longer be funding sporting facilities. This includes but is not limited to: cricket nets, floodlights, bowling greens, other pitch groundworks.


Sporting clubhouses or pavilions are still eligible but only if the building can demonstrate regular use by the wider community beyond the sports club or team.


We know this can be disappointing, but Biffa Award as a scheme is heavily oversubscribed and there is now less funding to distribute.

For help with your application please read our revised guidance notes.
