What type of costs are eligible?
All projects must be delivered on a not-for-profit basis. Eligible costs will include:

We cannot award funding for tangible assets e.g. tree saplings and seeds. However, if such inputs are necessary for a project, then applications could include a co-funder to cover these elements.
